New Mirror Options

It looks like there may be some new aftermarket mirror options becoming available. We went to a movie the other day and I saw these on the way back out to the car. I decided I better get some photo documentation so I could remember all the details. (only had the camera phone, so sorry about the poor photos). They look to be both highly adjustable and highly functional. I have been "googling" them but I have not been able to find the manufacturer. Any help might be appreciated.

Re: New Mirror Options

And bolted to the body!

It looks like it would have been cheaper to buy factory towing mirrors.

Oh, but then I noticed it was on a Toyota.

Re: New Mirror Options

Hmmm..... Looks like something out of the latest Terminator movie, or perhaps from the Borg.

Re: New Mirror Options

Very funny Greg. Is this the electric model or manual?

Re: New Mirror Options

I can't imagie what the fully-electric-adjustable versions would look like....

AND I think the Borg reference is right on target. Maybe they came by to see the new Star Trek Movie.... that WAS at the theater, you can see it on the marquee in the background
