Great add-on this thread and the pics as stellar.

So the smaller side mirrors also help on less wind drag, hence more HP!
You know it! And don't forget the smoked indicators! Easily adds another 5 HP. Now that I think about it though, I should've taken a pic of the US ones folded in to compare to these Euro ones folded in. I'm pretty sure these ones fold in more than the US ones. Probably why the base is angled and the shape is different, as the mirror housing curves towards the bottom inside of the mirror (vs the straight down design on the inside of the US version).

Yup! I love it! Well, maybe it's a little over exposed with the auto settings in the pics.

Here are a couple with manual exposure when I focus on the light with my Pixel 5 camera:

Needless to say. There is no puddle on earth that can escape these beams of light! Haha!

Yeah, I think if you ever your have your low/high and fog go out you should still be ok with your puddle lamps to drive at night!

How much was this mod cost out the door?

How much additional cost was for the PPF and the ceramic coat?

Taking into consideration the conversion rate at the time (which IIRC was around 1.25), and including the 2 rear headrests I included in the order, after shipping it came out to about $1200. The headrests would account for about $275 of that. PPF actually ended up being free because I had to keep bringing them back because it kept lifting (which I noticed it did again when I took them out of the box). If they didn't refund me, it would've been another $150 for the PPF and ceramic coating.

EDIT: Oh! Also add $140 for the Autobeam LED sequentials and puddle lamps. Also included in that cost were interior footwell LEDs and trunk LEDs.

Looks great! I hope I can do this swap soon to get rid of the massive factory dumbo/SUV ears. I thought the euro ones were shorter than that, but either way it's a big improvement.

They fold in a decent amount more, I have comparison pics somewhere.

I love the way just those LED lamps look, I have both (but I never installed those);I;m sure I will once I get senile and blind and need the light lol or the logos fail.

Finally getting around to ordering stuff for mine. I ordered the Kuga mirrors a while back, but they don't fit. Going to try to sell them to someone with an escape. I ordered new aftermarket mirrors from TYC (310-0191 and 310-0192) that should be here beginning of February. Did some searching, and found that the terminal that is used on WT1010 that was linked is 6W8T-14474-BA, in case anyone just wanted to buy the pins. I think I'm just going to spend some extra $$ and make new harnesses though. Looks like WPT949 and WPT1185 are what is needed. They both come fully populated so I don't have to worry about getting any new pins.

I found a few harness/pigtail resources that I figured I would share:

Great finds! For the full, pre-populated connectors you referenced:

Wire Assembly 3U2Z-14S411-BMAB | TascaParts.com (WPT 949)

Wire Assembly BU2Z-14S411-AJA | TascaParts.com (WPT1185)

It may be easier to just build a few wires with pins and pop them in. The challenge seems to be with removing pins, not adding them. It would be a lot of work to splice in an entire new connector.

Excellent! WPT 949 is the one that I would need since I broke the two pin retaining clips. Maybe I'll pick one up and practice unpinning it. Haha!

You can use a straightened out paperclip most times, it's not strong enough to break the clip, as it has some flex in the wire.

Got my driver side wired up and installed before it started to rain. Anyone else have to adjust the mirror full left to get a vaguely useful view? I think I still have like 15% my car in my mirror view. Normally I have it set so I can only see the rear door handle without moving my head.

Yes, the driver side is a little tight on the angle.

The proper way to adjust your driver side mirrors is to put your head against the driver's window and and adjust out till you just catch the handle (for passenger side you place your head over the center line). However, this method is useless on the euro mirrors; if you go left enough the aspheric just reflects the inside of the housing.

Shouldn't say useless. It is likely the intention of the aspheric is to allow you to see the body and have the wide angle view.

Mine isn't like that. I just checked, and mine can tilt pretty far out where I can't see my car anymore. When tilting it back in, it takes about 2 seconds for the door handle to come back into view.
