OK, it looks like we're getting close to putting together a group buy on the Muth Signal Mirror Kits from Muth Signal Mirror. The only installed kit on the planet is in my Murano (pictures are in my Gallery) and I really like them a lot.

The regular retail on the kits is $219 for unheated mirrors and $269 for heated mirrors. (This looks like the normal pricing on their web site.) It also looks like the group buy price would be about 15-20% off the regular retail.

(I think they'll go with the 20% off, depending on how many orders we get.)

The instructions for installation will be made available for review prior to ordering so you can all see what your getting involved with (or your local shop who'll do the work) installing them.

It looks like we'd have a set window to place orders (say for example a 30 day window) which is how they'll get around their normal pricing by calling it a pre-order period.

Who's interested at these quoted prices (less the 20%)?

Why are the stick-ons $22 on ebay? Do they peel? Short out? Just suck in general? Is this kit really worth 10x as much (and losing my heated mirrors?)

Eastern, you don't lose your heated mirrors, (as long as you buy the heated mirror kit). The heated portion doesn't extend under the LED's, so the very outside edge of the mirror isn't heated.

We haven't had a real hard frost here yet where my mirrors were completely iced up yet, so I don't know precisely how far out to the edge that they'll work.

This company makes only this product line (at least I think that's all they do) and seem to be pretty successful at it. There is a market for the product, and apparently at the regular prices of $269 and $219.

If it's not for you, then it's just not for you.

That's why I included all the various choices in the poll.

These guys were nice enough to install a set of the mirrors on my Murano for nothing as long as I served as the test vehicle so they could determine how difficult it would be to get them installed by the average owner.

That said, after having them and driving with them for a few weeks, I'd buy a set if I didn't already have them.

As to the price of the stick ons at $22, well I guess you get what you pay for.

I know this is a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway. I am willing to pay the price for the heated mirrors, my only problem is I have a base Murano without the heated mirrors now. Will I be able to install the heated mirrors on a Mo without that option originally??
My concern is the Muth mirrors may only have wiring to connect to the Murano's with existing wiring for the heated mirrors. If I cannot get the heated ones I would still be interested in the non-heated, I just prefer heated.

I was kind of waiting for this question to be asked!

I have no idea on whether or not the heated mirrors could be added to a MO that doesn't have them before hand.

I would suspect that the answer is yes, because it's just an electrical hook-up that's active when the defroster is in the on position but I really don't know if the connector is already in the wiring harness or not.

I sent Chris at Muthco your question in an e-mail and asked him to see if he could get an answer.

Since my TEST MO had the heated mirrors already, they may need one without the heated mirrors to really answer the question.

We'll see.

Here's the answer:

Last I heard from Chris at Muthco was they were developing the instructions first (trying to get them done before Christmas) and would finalize pricing (discounts, etc) shortly after that.

If you guys want to keep in contact with Chris at Muthco directly, it maybe more effective than trying to go through me. I'm really busy now and don't see the work load lightening up until 12/23.

I had 275 new posts to review when I logged in this morning (in a quiet moment).

Thanks for taking the time to help. That answered my question perfectly. Sorry I should have posed the question to Muthco directly. I will have to buy the HMOD option along with the mirrors.

Dear Dale,

Thank you for your inquiry!

We are hoping to be able to release the Murano Signal Mirror® kit in the next few weeks. I know there is a poll currently running on the Murano web forum about a group buy and once I get a firm date, I will advise Doug and we'll provide the details of the group buy.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me directly.


Sincerely,

As arranged by GripperDon, our good friend, the mirrors are now available at a substantial savings to the members of this forum.

Here is the letter Don forwarded to me.



Hi Don,

I wanted to keep you informed

I can offer you and the club members a $30.00 discount off of our retail price. So your cost would be $149.95 per kit + shipping. All you need to do, to receive the discounted price, is type in "Murano Club" in the comments section, at the bottom of our online order form.

Thank you,

Wireless Turn Signal mirror stick ons.

Well ther are 7 months late but worth the wait. Very easy to install. the system contains a test lamp, a backup charger, 2 turn signal mirrors, a transmitter, and some misc. supplies.

Very easy to install, Only 3 wires to connect and nothing to do with mirror replacement. I put the transmitter in the felt side trunk, cubby. Connected the right and left turn wires at the turn signal lamps behind the rear tail light housings, Attach the ground wire no hot lead required..

Switched on the units, test Voila they worked great. Stick them inplace and away we go!

They even supply a backup connector to a cigarette lighter in case you park in a completely dark garage for 6 weeks continously. Or just move into the sun light for 15 minutes.

Nice and bright from the rear and just right at the driver and passenger seats.
No impact on the turn signal frequency. There is a group buy discount for the Murano Board, as detailed above.

The pictures of the install are in my Gallery

What do you see when there is a mirror on a mirror? For example, if there is a car beside you, and you look out the side mirror, do you see two cars?
