Tow mirrors

I would like to upgrade my stock mirrors that came with my 05 silverado to towing mirrors . I am tired of the clip on mirrors. Chevrolet no longer carries them so I was wondering if anybody had any experiance with mirrors from top gear auto sport. They are heated and have power tilt and they run 300.00. Just hoping they are a quality product. Or maybe another company you have experiance with. Thank You Mike

Try 1aauto.com also they have great prices. But the aftermarket mirrors will never be as good as factory but they should be fine. My dad put aftermarket on his tundra you can tell they are a little cheaper made but they work.

Can't hurt to check Craigslist too. I added tow mirrors after buying my truck and sold the OM mirrors on CL. The buyer had tow mirrors and wanted regular mirrors....if only our paths had crossed a couple of days earlier I could had save some money.

I would keep checking until you buy the mirrors in case of new listings. Hate to miss a great sale by a day...

I've used the Kool Vue brand on different trucks. Just like OEM, a quality product.

Headlights, Mirrors items in AM-AutoParts store on eBay!

I followed Turbs' advice and direction to install these on my 2006 Silverado. It was easy to do and the mirrors are great.

If you want oem fit and finish go with kool vue or fit system. I have the fit systems and they look and feel identical to my father in laws oem mirrors.
