Yap have the same thoughts. the total cost is it worth it? and not sure with the LCI & signal LED can be mounted onto the PreLCI.
Anyone swapped the LCI onto the preLCI? this will save us alot of time for this mods.

Good idea... but some quick google price checking looks like youd be paying $350 or so at least for used mirrors, and who knows how the servos will be... then the LCI caps on top of that.

Wed probably be best off as mentioned before, looking into a group buy on the $300 ones

I was thinking more of an aftermarket turn signal option with a little splicing.

LCI mirrors are going to set you back more than the expensive covers. I've looked at the LCI mirrors as a retrofit. Looks pretty much a straight away with an extra 3 pin connector for the turn signals.

The challenge is getting the right direction mirrors, mine have cameras in and if I'm going through the hassle I may as well try and find a set with blind spot assist as a later retrofit and yet another button to go below the lights. I keep looking at eBay but finding a pair of LCI mirrors of the spec I want is a waiting game.

If you used the LCI mirror caps on a pre LCI car, it leaves a gap of where the indicators would be. Could you not use an over lay kit like the one below and cover the indicators. Wouldn't matter as if some were put into the mirrors, they wouldn't be connected.

I think that one is just a vinyl overlay. But I'm sure there's an LED turn strip you can throw in there to cover the gap

You would need to fit the turn signals into the mirror housing. But as they wouldnt be connected or working, I thought they could be covered with the overlay and be made hidden.

Just a thought, not sure how it'd look.

Well you could order something like this to fill the gap and make it a little bit custom at the same time:

It has F06 listed as compatible. Buy, fit, return if it doesn't fit due to improper advertising. The only thing you lose is time.

I don't see a bottom piece, these look like they should fit. Check out the listing and scroll to the pic where they are flipped.

I still think $300 is a bit steep!

High price point justified by how rare they are :

Yes, got to wait for the price drops. Is not a must have mods, once aliexpress starts to sell, the price will likely drops to 100 .

You would think they'd have a similar price point to the LCI covers...

Like you guys have said, its now a waiting game!

1) Remove the entire stock side mirror set in order to fit in the F10 mirror.
There should be a blank space inside the mirror.
