    Just paid the dealer to install the powered side mirrors on my 2013 model S.
    When I tried to list the original equipment mirrors on the Parts for sale site I got a "not authorized to post" error message.
    Did not get a reply from the forum to my question about what was necessary to be allowed to post the mirrors.
    I want to sell them for $300 each to someone who either had damaged mirrors or ones that will not fold.
    any help would be appreciated.

    I don't know if it is true here or not but many other fora I have participated in have restrictions on posting For Sale items if you do not have enough posts on the forum. Maybe that is the problem???

    99% it's because you don't have enough posts. As you get more posts you'll get more privileges.

    How much does it cost to have the powered mirrors installed?

    I was quoted $1575 and have contemplated it. However, I'd prefer to wait till the front/rear parking sensors come down in price and upgrade those instead.

    Yeah, I really liked the way the sensors worked on a loaner I had... even in winter with the car covered in snow. The integration with the screens is very nice too. I had been considering after-market (which would only have the "beepers", no screen integration), but if there is a sense the Tesla retrofit may come down in price, I'll wait.

    I don't really see the need for the mirrors or the sensors, to be honest. The mirrors don't bother me, and if it gets nicked a replacement is less than $100. Also, with the backup cam, the lens is so wide that I don't find the need for sensors. The only thing I think I'll do is that front camera.
