    There aren't any power folding yet that I'm aware of. I haven't added the leds to the backside yet. Hasn't been high on the priority list as of late.

    Fair enough. Chances are if I added the leds to the backside they would end up hyperflashing I assume?

    What would make you assume that? Because you're doubling up on the same circuit? Hyper flashing is usually an indication of using LEDs where incandescents were used originally. Using LEDs shouldn't cause a problem, but I've been known to be wrong before...

    Maybe I'm just over thinking it! Not sure why but I did not think the signal lamps in the mirror were LED? Sounds like all I'll need to do if adding the additional signal is tap right into same source as whats going to the signal in the mirror already. Adding in dynamic signals would likely be a bit more complicated?

    Yes, with LEDs being low wattage, you should be able to just tap in to what's already there for wiring in the mirrors.
