Except for the black cap vs chrome cap, I believe those are the same mirrors I have on my 2006.
They are well worth the price. I started out with the CIBA clip on mirrors. They are not in the same league as these OEM style mirrors.
A couple things to note:
1: power mirror does not mean power extend/retract or fold. Those functions are manual. Only the aiming of the upper "flat" mirror is power.
2: While everything appears to work correctly (especially signal flashers) - the defrost light on the dash blinks whenever the signals are activated. When the defrost button is depressed, the mirror flashers don't work. Some people have rewired theirs to make them work correctly. Since I am not comfortable popping the glass mirror out of its mount, I have left mine alone.
Here's what they look like:

Thanks! That looks pretty good.. I found one that looks just like mine with tow mirrors.. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger as soon as I can squeeze it in the budget.. Too many hobbies and too much stuff going on the summer..

No chrome caps and not extended.

I finally got the chance to tow with them extended and they blow away clip on trailer mirrors.

They also provide a much better view in normal driving, especially the blind spot mirrors.
