As many of you know we have been feverishly working on these mirrors since last year so its VERY exciting to finally have a working prototype. We have built plenty of digital versions of these mirrors but its not the same as have a production set in the flesh

Are these going to be Electrochromic mirrors? Or just a standard mirror?

Any reduction in visibility compared to the stock mirrors?

The lack of dimming killed it for me.

We use a specially designed aspheric glass so there is minimum visibility reduction.

That's awesome. I was fully expecting some loss of visibility.

Since I had no clue what an "aspheric" mirror was, I looked it up:

"How do they do that?
By using different degrees of convexity. 80% of the aspheric mirror is a convex wide-angle surface similar to the U.S. passenger side mirror. The outside 20% of the mirror is super wide-angle, getting progressively more convex toward the outside edge. You can see objects in this part of the mirror, but they are scrunched horizontally, so much so that at the edge of the mirror they are hard to identify. But you can see whether something is there or not.

Why would I not want them?
Because it is even harder to gauge distance in these mirrors than in the standard wide-angle U.S. passenger-side mirror. This is mostly of concern with the driver's side mirror. Some people have gotten used to them. Some people have reported near-accidents with them."

hmmm. Don't really know if this is good or not.

Yes, Plug and Play. These mirrors will plug right into your existing harness. If you want to connect the LEDs to the turn signals there will be a connection you make there.
