Not sure 100% what this says, but I think it says "Items in mirror are closer than they appear" both sides have writing on them, and the drivers side mirror is concave. I will try and see if the glass will swap out




The bodys are gloss, like the Korean cars are around the windows. I have some ideas, will get to that later.



Power folding anyone?



Straight off, these mirrors are not plug and play, though they do fit on the car perfect. I will be working with Shark Racing to get this working.

Also the white used in Korea is the same white in the US

Wow so the Korean model comes with power folding mirrors?

The Korean sonatas sure do get lots of love, led tails, power folding mirrors, etc...

I just hope that all these cool features are added to the US model when the turbo comes out.

I was just checking out my Sonata today and it looks like you will have to modify the interior trim panel for the power fold button. I dont think finding a power wire would be too difficult. let us know how you make out..

The Auzie guys get them as well. I do now see that the door panel will need some modification for the button to work, but it is pretty far down my list right now to get working. I was able to get the plug off my stock mirrors, just like I had to do with my tail lights for the LEDs, so I am about to try it on the new mirrors as well.

No YF meets around here that I know of, but if we get enough people I am always down for one.

So for the most part, this swap is going to be just like the LED taillight swap. I was able to get the connectors off of both sets of mirrors, and swap them out. I have the glass motor and the defroster working on the passanger side, and am about to work on the drivers side, but its freaking hot outside.

Here are some daylight pictures.







I am hoping Shark can find the plastic part that goes in front of the mirror, and the one on the back door. I am going to see my paint guy about changing the flat black paint out to gloss black, I like that look anyways.

your paint guy should be able to use a high build primer and smooth out the rough texture. then paint them normally to a smooth finish.. What do you think about painting them to match the car? Or would that be overkill white?

do the mirrors also come without the fold option? I really dont see a need for it for the wife's car.

I am going to talk to him about just painting those parts. I think going body color would be to much white. I like the way it looks like a big piece of glass with the tinted windows. They do come without the power fold option, but at that point you might as well just buy the Limited ones from the dealership. I was able to get the drivers side hooked up also, its super simple.

I tried to swap the glass out, and the glass from the NA will not go into these housings. It takes some getting use to having the curve on the drivers side mirror, so if you were just going to do the turn signals, thats why I would get the Limited ones.

I got these from Shark Racing, I sent him a PM with an idea, and he worked me up a price. I think once we get it all hammered out, and can confirm the other colors, he will be listing them for regular sale. Hooking up the turn signals will not be a problem. I just want to wait a couple weeks for it to cool off, and so that I have a whole weekend to tear into the doors and run the wires I need.

I would think my issue with the folding mirrors would be making the interior panel look decent. I am pretty good with modding stuff, but cutting plastics really never looks real clean. That would be my only drawback. The wiring is not an issue with me. I've had alot of practice at that with my show vehicle.. LOL

And it figures our glass wouldnt work with these housings either. Was the price much more than the ebay mirrors?
Did you ever price out the Limited Mirrors? If so, how much were they?

That looks really good. And now with the plastic inlay, it should look OEM. Any chance Shark Racing can put together a plug'n'play package?

Wow do the Sonatas not offer power folding mirrors? The new 2012 Optima EX with prem package has folding mirrors...not sure if it's offered on all trims though.

FYI the optima gets a lot of options that the sonata doesnt, such as seats with two person memory, cooled seats, illuminated door sills and led tail lights

us sonatians are lucky to have gotten the panoramic sunroof for the 2012 model year... you could say we got ripped off.
