It won't come off, it's in the mirror just like the 'objects may appear closer'.
I got mine last night and installed them today. (I don't have a dig. camera so please don't flame me for no pic's!!)
The install was not too bad, taking everything apart and installing the mirrors went pretty smooth. The wiring was not too fun, splicing the wires into the harness was a biatch, unless you are an acrobat or have hands as small as a 3 year old that was the worst part. But, they are in, they work and they look pretty darn good so overall I'm really happy with them.

Is the print as big as the "objects are closer" print? I don't want no ghey thunderbolt crap on my truck....I can live with it if it's as small as the oem print on the mirrors though.

The print is about half an in high by 3 inches wide, and it is etched into the glass. You won't notice it unless you are looking directly at the mirror.

The advantage of people on your sides being able to see your signal is well worth it. No tot mention the 27.95 to your door price.
