completely useless gimmick of an option. with properly set up mirrors you wont have blind spots.

I sent Ford an email to see if they would give me a vendor name for the mirrors.

I know some vendors make things available to other vehicles in the aftermarket.

Kinda like the rearview mirrors camera are made by Gentex

Those mirrors, and the little stick on bubble mirrors are such a crutch, what happens when you rent a different vehicle, or worse have to drive a different vehicle in an emergency.
