I think when mirrored the parts created are "wavelinked" to the original so if you modify the original they also modify (simetrically). You cant create a mirrored assembly where the position is associated, if you move one part that have possitioned mirrored (same part) it wont update

big limitation is that mirror assembly is not associative. All others CAD have mirror assembly associative, but NX 11 on 2017 no.
Thank you...

Well if I update the position of the parent component in the assembly then it gets updated for the mirrored component also (created using the asseociative option). Same if I update the part/component geometry. Could you please share some snaps or assembly part files.
