Side View Mirror (no auto dimming) - alternatives?

Unfortunately the Model Y does not come with Auto Dimming side mirrors. and the existing fleet is not wired for such.

I found some aftermarket side view mirror replacements from SUMA Performance.
Convex'd for wider view, and Blue Tint to reduce glare.

I really want auto dimming, but since that is not available, I'm thinking the antiiglare is the next best option?

Has anyone installed these and do they work as advertised?

I have these on order and am hoping they arrive by the end of the month to install. I can report back then unless others get theirs earlier.

Just received and installed my mirrors. On my blue car they are a subtle change but definetely noticeable in color. Super easy install as well if you just trust that you have to pull harder than you are comfortable to remove the OEM ones. Very happy to not have the “Objects are closer than they appear” warning label printed on there as well!

Thanks for the pics, and the reassurance on the removal haha!! I’ve got two sets to install today (silver/heated), and while I’ve seen the videos and understand how they’re attached, I know I would be hesitant to pull hard on the OEM.
