The mirrors should swap, but you'll add to need the wiring for the signals to work.

And the tails should swap without a problem.

Thanks. I have not yet decided on the mirrors, but i have confirmed that my current mirrors have all the features less the signal indicators. My I-Touring has just about everything but the heated seats and Navigation. Sunroof, Bose, auto sensing wipers,etc...

are the tail lights two pieces for each side? What do you think of $270 for both sides?

You just need the outer tails and not the ones located on the trunk lid. Also $270 is way too much. Called them and negotiate by telling them there are other vendors that are cheaper.

Agreed- found another set for $170 + shipping. The other guy would not go under $210 - thanks

Put the LED tails in yesterday. Piece of cake and they look good. I will have pics soon. Also received DS2 6000k HID lamps to replace stock. Need to sort through the LEDs I received to see where they will go in the interior. Dome was replaced and looks good.

When going to OEM LED tails, did anyone swap out the turn signal bulb with an LED?

I think you need resistors for that stuff.

I got screwed out of my led tail. The guy i bought it from a mont ago sent me a pic saying it was scratched. No biggie scratches buff out. It was sent to my place in wellington. I just left orlando yesterday and came here. Found the tailight. Confirmed it was scratched. Also confirmed its missing a huge chunk of plastic off of tge corner and the seal is broken. Needless to say im very pissed off and called the guy and demanded my money back. Got it back but now i only have one tailight

The 2nd gen light assembly's crack very easy around the edges.

I had to replace my driver side light, and now my passager light has a chip in it less then month later.

Its really starting to work my nerves especially when I have never removed them.
