Default ebay foling mirror motorized

I been want the folding mirror option for my car. They only have this option for the Japanese and European model.. I find the link on ebay for the part. Looking for some input if the part is possible and How hard would the install be for our US Model car ? The seller is from US.

here is the link to the part. each side is 100.00 kind of pricey thou.

Are you sure it's a folding mirror or just the stock power motor. I wouldn't mess with it and i'm sure it's not that easy to wire up if it were even compatible for the US cars. How much did you expect for something electronic. $100 is cheap!

I think it's just regular mirrors. Haven't seen current gen IS with folding mirrors only tilt down option with luxury model, even that's just in the ECU mirrors are the same.

the listing come with the motor and actuator wiring ? does our stock mirror have the actuator ? i have no knowledge with the wiring... but the item come with all the pin and connector... Do you guy think is a plug and play or is more of custom wiring for the mirror to fold ?

IIRC, non-USDM ISx50s have power folding mirrors

It looks and sounds like a stock mirror.

Also, the item location is in Texas, USA. Probably not the Euro/JDM part you're looking for.

This is not a folding mirror. It's a regular mirror. The actuator they are referring to is the one that moves the mirror glass.

If you want a power folding mirror, you're going to need to look outside of North America most likely.
