    I hear it costs $3k to retrofit power folding mirrors to 2013 models. Has anyone found cheaper in southern California?

    I got those on my tech package. I turned the feature off... bunch of needless un/folding.

    Sure you want it?

    You're correct. Here's a service center quote from another thread. DIY or retrofitting through an independent shop could save on labor.

    I had my last P85 (July 2013 build) retrofitted by Tesla for around $1,500 ($750 each mirror).

    It's interesting to see such a variation in pricing. A member of our local club had it done for the same cost as tezzla ($1,500) about half a year ago.

    blows my mind that some people would be willing to pay that kind of money for FOLDING MIRRORS.

    Mine was about the same, parts have come down in price and they charge about 1 hr labor. As long as you have the harness you are good.

    $869 might be worth it. The old price of $1,500 to $2,500 not so much. I'll ask my service center.

    I was told $3,200 for my early Sig. Oh well. Another reason to upgrade to the D in a few years:)

    When was your car produced?
