I haven't seen these before, but they look interesting. I think all vehicles made now should have the turn chevrons in the mirrors. We'd have a lot fewer driver's going around with their signals on when they are not making a turn. Perhaps on this variety it would only get the driver's attention at night, as they appear to be on the side.

Kind of pricey at $179.95 + $6.95 shipping.

I agree, Honda should of had them in the Ridgeline.
I think (hope) someone added this feature to the 2007 RL wish/need list.

I saw those at the Sema show last year.

They look really slick since there are no wires to run to and through the door.

I would love to hear from someone that has them as to how they hold up and how well the solar charging does. That was my main concern when looking at them.

Muth makes some wired ones that I've heard good things about. They don't show a custom fit mirror for the Ridgeline yet.

How does it get the turn signal, if you don't run any wires through the door? :confused: And, if you have to run turn signal wires, you might as well run power at the same time.

He provided a link :D It's solar powered and wireless. A transmitter is tapped into to the turn signal wiring harness.

I would argue that the bigger problem lies with people not using their turn signals at all, as opposed to the ones who manage to leave theirs on mile after mile... after mile... after mile... that's irritating, but I think it's worse to change lanes or turn without a signal, IMHO.

I've often been tempted to ask people after seeing them turn without using their signal (esp. if it's a nice luxury car), "Hey, nice car! I guess it was too expensive for you to get the turn signal option?" But then I'm afraid I'll get beat up, so I keep my mouth shut. :D

Flymuck, agree completely. They seem to think "I turn here everyday! Don't you know that!" I guess it comes from being the center of the universe.

You mean I'm not?? :confused:

Oh, wait, you meant *them*, the other people, the I'm-too-good-to-use-a-turn-signal people. I get it. :D

Yeah, how could they be the center of the universe, when clearly I am? ;)

OK, I'll shut up now. :p

Its hard to use that turn signal when your left hand is holding the cell phone to your ear.

Wow - I KNEW this was the place to find the meaning of life -

Life is MUCK-centric!

And besides, the left hand is for the cell phone, the right hand is for the cigarette, the lap is for the bowl of cereal, and the steering wheel is to support the newspaper. And, no, I am not kidding - I saw this on my drive in to work last week. Lexus - anyone surprised?

Of course not. It was probably on cruise control, so everything was cool. :D

Yes , I got a set of these turn signal for the mirror, they work fine. just tap into the left and right turn signal wires and the control box under the bumper sends a RF signal to either the left or right turn signal. The solar panel on the top of the unit charges the turn signal for each of the blinkers. They are very bright both day and night.
