Doing the mirrors in the next few weeks on an '06 vert. Just wanted to add that you don't need to buy the actuators because they come included within the Right 51167893468 mirror and
LEFT 51167893597 mirror housings. So this saves about $340. If all goes well my total cost will be $520 shipped and painted.
