Another towing mirror question for my '08

It looks like the prices are starting to come down a bit for the towing mirrors.
I found these at newfordparts.com:


(sorry about the size)


I'm a little curious about the "dealer installation only". I really don't see a need to have a dealer install them, but I wonder if they won't sell them to me otherwise...


The wife gave me the go ahead to order them.

Does anyone have any insight on the whole dealer only thing?

That's why the price is down. They get it back with the labor charge which wasn't mentioned. Just my guess.

It's only for one, so a pair puts the price at $300.

That might be a good guess.

I found another link that had the dealer pricing at $120ish a piece, but you definitely needed to be a dealership or have a business account to purchase them. These are already marked up, so I'm wondering why a dealer would be buying from this website.

I've found other sites selling these, but they all have the same ad that says dealer installation only.

That is ridiculous to make a dealer install them if that is the case.


Guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow...

Screw it.

I went ahead and ordered them. The entire order process went through without a problem. We'll see tomorrow if they cancel it.

Re: Another towing mirror question for my '08

Those part #'s are for 100% manual mirrors with no power options. I have a set sitting right next to me in the OEM boxes. The description is very deceiving.

Thats weird because it states that it also includes power adjust, heating, marker/turn signal.

That ad tells me that they are manual telescoping with power everything else.

That is a flat out lie by what you are saying.
