I hear they have a different electrical harness. Looks like a PITA to get turn signal mirrors. Should be about $350 a pair without install. This is the price for Big Tow mirrors last year. ;)

$350 is not bad.....as for the wiring ... all we need to do is pull a few wires for the indicators, put a switch for the folding functions.. doesnt sound that hard..

Not hard, but not a plug and play. I'd be fine because I professionally installed stereos, alarms, etc. for 3 years. Most people would have a problem doing this though. Also, Burtman has some he is selling for less, but I think they aren't stock and they don't have defrost. ;)

Dont forget i got the QX so i would need the chrome housing... and what i really want is the electric folding function and the auto dimming is a big plus with mirrors this size. i too have many years of experience with car audio installations so as for the wiring im not worried.

Hmmm,
$300 extra for signals. Makes sense. :rolleyes:
Guess Nissan didn't plan to sell extra to allow earlier model owners to upgrade. Thanks Nissan. :moon:

Lot of interest on this, hope someone makes it work!!
It should just be a direct bolt on. Then find the wires for the turn signals and run wire to the switch area in the door. The new switch will also plug right in to the stock position. Get the harness for the new switch and wire it with al the wires and then you are plug and play. I installed for a few years, the wiring should take an hour or so. The $500 cost is for the mirrors but not the switch or harness. Probably closer to $600 when you're all done. ;)

I heard $500 total. Oh, well, suits me right for getting data second hand. Regardless, $500 for both was way too much for a gimmick to begin with. The only real purpose it serves is to go "look at this". ;)

Actually the folding option is an awsome feature for city parking and auto dimming...need I say more? Well I will how many times have you enjoyed not being blinded by your rearview mirror auto dim feature only to look at your side mirror right into some bmw's HID's? $1000 bucks is pretty steep but if it won't kill you then give this option some thought.

im going to call nissan tomorrow and confirm the price...infiniti told me $500 ea. i think $500 is not too bad because it has nothing to do with looks its functionality...i drive in NYC and its a bitch when a van is double parked and i need to stop ,put it in park and lean over to fold in the mirror move the car and lean over agian to open the mirror.... i can care less for the indicators but the folding and auto dim is great...hell we pay $500+ for the ave upgrade just to watch movies while we drive!! LOL
