Default Power Retractable Mirrors

I just purchased a 2015 IS350 f sport with all options only to learn that this f--king thing doesn't have power retractable side mirrors. Do they make an option kit or aftermarket kit. Just curious if there are any other hidden little gems I'm going to come across. I'm already starting to regret returning to a Japanese car after being away for a decade.

Many features are missing from USDM spec'd cars, most notably fog lights and I believe the powered mirrors for the IS.

AFAIK for 2015, you could only get power mirrors in the executive package, which was not offered with any F-Sport packages. Pretty stupid because I would've paid for an executive F-Sport package, and I'm sure many of you would've as well.

I'm not sure if the connections are there (they probably are but you might need a different harness), but you might be able to buy the power mirror parts and it might be plug and play. I think one guy on here bought fog light parts and it turned out to be plug and play when he hooked it up. The mirrors aren't cheap though. I think they were around $700 each for just the mirror last time I checked.

I'm also pretty disappointed in lexus that they didn't have the power mirrors to retract and move when you're in reverse. To pay so much for an IS350 fsport and not have some very basic luxury options is quite a slap in the face.

Time to go on eBay and hunt for used set.
Hint, 4GS shares alot of parts with 3IS so it's possible mirrors are as well

Really it does. ?? I have the RC350 fsport also and I don't think my car has this. I guess I'll test it but I don't have it as far as I am aware of and my car is fully loaded

I have this on both of my cars ( Lexus and Hyundai) and I think it is not really necessary, except if you life on a narrow street where other cars passing by could hit your car.

The way it works in my RX and GS is to make sure the AUTO button, located on the mirror controls, is actuated.
