Mirrors are manual fold. Original non tow mirrors were power fold.

how much did the 5100's set you back?

were the fronts tough to install?
Can't remember price exactly. Got them from my guy at napa. He ordered them straight thru Essex distributors in bc. I could have ordered them straight from them myself but I was ordering a few other things so got him to get it all. They have the cheapest prices. They were nearly $50 cheaper for the entire set then he could get from his actual suppliers. Google Essex distributors in bc and you can price out with shipping, guaranteed you'll save money over buying thru any place here in ab.

do you have a rough estimate as to the cost?

my door detent 3.0's arrived today. too bad that i am at work until 7:00pm.

i have been looking forward to these to arrive.

ordered June 15, arrived today.
keep in mind that they're from the states and gotta get through customes etc for us canucks.

i ordered em just before the fathers day sale was on. free shipping. saved almost 15bucks. doesn't seem like much, but my price was almost 94 bucks after pay pal conversion rate and everything (other than shipping) all in.

Not one bit. I actually only used it once. To me it's one of those needless electronic gadgets that will eventually fail at some point.

If I remember correctly it was about $450 for all corners shipped...keep in mind they do stiffen the ride a bit. Not in a bad way, just a bit stiffer I think

Says you, I use them once or twice a day lol.
My 2010 didn't have them and it was a PITA to park in the garage. This is my 2010 but you get the point.

Fair enough.

The tow mirrors are going down in price all the time so the temptation to buy a set grows for me. The biggest thing is trying to decide if I can live without the power fold feature LOL.
