I replaced my original non-towing mirrors on my 2006 several years ago and DID NOT get the turn signal chevrons in the mirror surface. When turning at night with the appropriate turn signal operating that chevron flashing in my eyes keeps me from seeing where my trailer is. At the very least this chevron should have an on/off switch so it can be turned off when needed. IMHO

I guess I am lucky. My Avalanche came with power telescoping tow mirrors. If I didn't have them, I would add them. They help sight lines tremendously..

I bought the strap on mirrors for my 2015 colorado. A few days later I found out I could get oem mirrors for the holden colorado out of australia and they'd fit but are over $500.

or they also have these, which I have not explored, but same style.

I also use the Grand Aero mirrors, best clip/strap/glue/tape/whatever on mirrors I've found.

Anybody with the k-source: Do they have enough friction in the hinge so they dont blow closed (folded) at highway speed when a semi flies by from the other direction? ......Like my stockers do with the clip ons.

Bought the Fit Towing mirrors for my 2010 GMC PU last year, $260.00 per pair on Amazon. They were Electric Adjustable Upper Mirror & Heated, manual adjustment on the lower convex glass. Manual adjustment In & Out. Plug & Play on the connections. About 45 minutes per side installation, (faster on the second side). Many You-Tube videos to help you thru.

Never had a problem with them all winter, heated properly and fully. One of the better mods to my GMC. Never had them fold back unless I wanted them to. Much better viewing & clearer for Towing. Well worth the investment!

Price your mirrors at 1A Auto : Aftermarket Auto Parts, Car Body Parts, Replacement & New Automobile and Truck Parts | Buy Discount Car & Auto Parts Online, they have very good mirrors that are reasonably priced.

Same mirrors I added to my 2013. I did not have signals on my factory mirrors, but when I plugged these in, the chevron signals worked without re flashing the BCM. Heat works great in winter and have never had them fold unless I moved them myself.

I have a set of these and once I figured out to label them for left and right side of the tow vehicle. I barely have any adjustments to make when I put them back on. Much cheaper than what you are looking at.
