Just unbolt the old ones, and bolt on the new ones. Takes all of 5 minutes. no software is required.<p>As a bonus they make less wind noise and don't splatter up the side windows in the rain and snow.

BTW, they come in a power folding version too (controlled by a button on the dash).

Re: (Sjappi)

Thanks for looking that up<p>Is there anyway to tell if the mirror has memory just by looking at it?<p>Also I noticed these mirrors have little rain drops in the corner, what is that?<p>Chris

Re: (Cjones16)

If your drivers seat has three memory buttons on the side, then you have position memory mirrors too.<p>the rain drop means the glass is water repellant (like the symbol in the upper right of my mirror)<br><IMG SRC="http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e86/ss60/aspheric.jpg" BORDER="0">
