Sure wish I could get them. I like the LEDs sitting lower than the ones I have now. Plus the mirror themselves look a lot better (more area).

Seems little expensive, but, a lot better than those darn itty bitty ones.

IMO they look cheap to me. not price, rather the quality. something just doesn't look right. maybe its just me... actual photos would make all the difference!

anyway, they can't be fully compatible from 1985-2000 because the electrical part changed in 96, from four wires to three. compatibility would be either 1985-1995 or 1996-2005. physically, as in to mount, they stay the same across both generations, 1985-2005.

and i'd be weary of the front-facing white LEDs. some states don't like that sort of stuff.

just my :2:

I have found them a little cheaper. If you can call $62 cheaper. Oh, those are manual, not power (the ones for $62)

I'm gonna keep an eye on them. They look better than the ones I currently have. I would have to change the LEDs out to blue though as I don't use them for turn signals. They are wired to my alarm system.

Oh, and the power ones look to be 4 wire + 2 for the LEDs. Guess that would mean they'd be for '96 and up.

nah that would be 95 and older

the plug is the same. they (GM designers) took off one wire from it. its the up-down function that is lost if you try to plug one to the other. left-right still works.

my right mirror is a 95/older one. my left is the original 2000 one. not having power in one direction on the RH side doesn't bother me in the least but i thought id throw it out there for prospective buyers.

i'll take photos sometime
