I ordered power mirrors but you have to splice them into the factory wires, the wire colors are the same but the plugs are different

Ok so I got a tow mirror to play around with but on the fence about the look. Little bigger then I was expecting so I wanted to see what others think.

You should take a shot from the back. To see how it compares to the rear end

From the back it doesn't seem that bad it's more so from the front that looks off.

YES MORE INFO ON THE E350 mirrors!
very interested to see how they are mounted up... the 06+ are nice, but don't cut it when I am towing my trailer full of scrap, or just full....

it took me 2 hours to do both including unboxing both mirrors, removing the door panels, drilling new holes, cutting down the e350 mirrors, and splicing in the power mirror wires. I should have gone a little slower to make it look better but I was just so excited lol they look amazing
