I was just thinking about that the other day......even entry illumination that would come on with the interior lights....mounted under the outside mirrors to illuminate the ground next to the front doors. There'* room in there.

My parents used to have a car that whenever you would turn on the turn signal, it had like an extra headlight that would turn on to illuminate the side that you were about to turn to.

Most fullsized GM trucks have red directional lit-up arrowhead dealies on the side mirrors. But I have only seen turn signal indicators on BMW'* and Mercedes

I was looking into this myself. There are separate fender-mounted indicators available all over the place which just bolt into drilled holes in the fender or door, wherever you want to stick the things, and they're pretty much a no-brainer to install. You can even cannibalize them from other cars if you like some certain design.

But the really nice ones, IMHO, are either built in to the mirror housing or set into the mirror glass, and those are harder to find in aftermarket form. I found a couple of possibilities in the J.C. Whitney catalog but neither are really what I'd like: one was a kind of cheesy-looking big red arrow ( http://jcwhitney.com/product.jhtml?CATID=194176 ).

I did find "LED side-mirror lights with amber lenses" ( http://jcwhitney.com/product.jhtml?CATID=466341 ) which look real interesting and install on the outside of the mirror housing, but I'm worried about getting them ripped off; has anyone got those? If I can't find adhesive surface-mount mini-LEDs that would stick right to the mirror glass, I might consider these instead.

There'* also "LED Parking/Signal Lights" ( http://jcwhitney.com/product.jhtml?CATID=466332 ) but they're only available in red or blue, 5" long, and I don't know if those could be formed into an arrow on the mirror.

If anyone'* got photos of these installed on their cars, I'd love to see them.

Tell us how it goes; I'm wondering if that 5"-long backing is too long for the mirror (i.e. when it'* folded slightly into a "<" shape on the outer edge of the mirror glass).
