I'm looking into the same thing. I have a 2007, and I'm looking into getting these. If you post some pics, I might be able to help you out.

BTW which ones did you get? (eBay??)

I had some on mine. Ran a wire from the rear tail lights and connected the mirrors to that. Worked fine, just that there was to much distortion in the mirror. Took them off and later added stick on turn signal arrows to the OEM mirrors and used the same wire.

Yeah we bought them on Ebay. Here is a pic of them . I was looking at them and the wires look like they would hook direct to the wire harness, because they are power just like my OEM.with the exception of the LED wires.... I will put pics up of the wires when i get my Cam back. Question , the harness that has the OEM wires , do they come out... or do i have to buy another harness setup?? Did I loose anyone...

Never did think about that... I saw some instructions on how to do one, but it was for something like you have and it was for an 01 & 02.. They located the turn signal wires in the driver side kick panel and passanger side kick pannel. Is it the same for an 06 ???? May just go and get them installed, which is what my almost wife said to do, she told me quit being hard headed.... but did not use those kind words...lol..

I think the harness is supposed to hook right into the oem one for the motor, meaning once you get the door panel off, you should be able to seperate the two halves of the harness and the new mirrors will just clip right in (I think, I don't have mine just yet) and the other wires (for the leds) will need to be attached to what function you want, i.e.:

Amber = turn signal, run the wire to the front or rear turn signal on the positive lead for each respective side

White = Brights (high beams), run the wire to the steering column and figure out what wire controls this.

Blue = parking lights, run the wire to the steering column and figure out what wire is active when the parking lights are on.

Other than that, they should be pretty easy to install...

Wow ... thanks... Only problem I have is that the wires from the new mirrors have no harness, they are loose... Can I pull the OEM wires out from there harness???

Again thanks for the info... That will come in handy....

you could use the original harness if you want a nice clean install, but it might be a lot of work.
You would have to pop the pins out without damaging them, desolder, then solder the new wires and pop them back in.
The other option that would be a whole lot easier would be to just wire the new wires directly to the oem ones, and just lose the harness altogether.
If you want to be able to go back to stock easily, you could clip the wires and harness from the old mirror and wire the new mirror to the clipped harness, and when you sell the car, or to return to stock, just buy a set of new mirrors, or re-wire the harness. (This way the only wires clipped are the ones in between the mirror and harness.)

Post some pics if you can of the aftermarket mirrors and what wires and brackets are included. BTW those are the exact ones I want to get, but I want to paint them body color instead of leaving them black...

Thanks..... I will put some pics up tomorrow of the mirrors, brackets, 6 screws.. They also give you a set of wires to extend yours.... What store are you getting yours from?? I bought mine from MotorEnergy... I plan on leaving them black for now...
