Had a chance to look at a 2013 avalon. It appears that mirrors the same specs of the 2013 venza side mirrors are used on the avalon. Trouble is, the avalon is not available in super white.

anybody have blind spot monitoring that has attempted this mod?
The BSM system is actually just a light in the mirror, the radar sits in your bumper, left and right quarter panels. Useful info for you to know: if you ever get tapped or hit in the rear-sides, your BSM could seriously start to malfunction apparently. It's all in the manual :)

Outside of it being ever so slightly snugger to run the wires through the door, you should be fine.

Nice, the fact the we don't have to change the mirrors saves alot of money. Unfortunately I can't find a Toyota dealership in Toronto that will even consider "retrofitting" parts from one vehicle to another. Also I was quoted parts alone to Canada are $300 :O

Someone had posted an online site where the parts came to almost what I paid. Fortunately I have a friend that works for Toyota. They wouldn't install the parts either but I also have a friend who owns an audio shop in town. It took him about 20 mins to install.

That' not bad. I need to find the part number for the Blizzard Pearl mirror covers.

Thanks

I was reading through the 6 pages and people were throwing up different price quotes. I seen where you can get it from. Just wondering what other people are recommending. I work for Ed Martin Honda we have a Toyota dealer under Ed Martin so i was going to call my Toyota dealer tomorrow and see what my employee pricing is. I also went to www.toyotapartszone.com and for everything I got $175 shipped. So basically same price.
