    Courtenay Sport do a kit for electric foldable mirrors. They supply 2 different looms to go with the kit - one for late cars with the wiring already there, or one for cars without the wiring. You would specify the kit for a car without the wiring.

    How much for cars with the loom already there?
    @ Dixon It take 30 - 60 mins to do when you have all the parts ( and 6 warm days to paint the back covers )
    I did it my self on a saturday afternoon (day before a meet) and washed and polished the car with the left over time.
    Only piece of ad vice I can give is

    1 there's a lump of polystyrene in the bottom corner which is a pain to get cabling around.
    2 watch out for the track for the electric window as its sharp and anything.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    I'd expect this to be for the MK5 and not the MK4 where this post is.
