    Alright all you gen4 owners..... here is what I did on Sat 2/3/18.

    As far as I know, these are technically the 1st set installed in the US. 3in1 sequential turn signal mirror lights.

    Did you have to change any wiring?
    It's hard to tell for sure, do those mirrors have BSM?
    Where did you get the mirrors?

    OEM mirrors w/BSM. No wiring was changed but rather added. It was not prewired for turn signals so all new wiring was added through the door harness (6 in total each door). Unlike the gen3, the gen4 uses a water tight connector in the A pillar. The signal light kit comes with the matching male/female terminals to insert into the connector.

    1. What about cars without BSM?
    2. What is the cost of the parts? Not all of us are close to your shop.

    I'm wondering the same. No BSM on my Prius 2.

    Upgrading to these mirrors looks to be about a $700 project if you need to pay someone for install.

    Love the look of these though. Very, very sharp.

    I would assume you could install and not connect BSM. It is possible the BSM wiring is in the harness, especially for 2017 since it became available as standard later in the year.

    The signals come in a chrome finish (~$270) & a black chrome finish (~$300)

    Wether u have BSM or not doesn’t matter. Nothing is affected or changed with it.

    This mod can be installed in all trim levels of the gen4

    The link in your first post takes me to an ebay page with 19,000 parts, lol.

    Do you have a direct link to the black chrome version? Also, how many hours should I expect in labor for the install?

    I think the link was auto-generated on the site.

    Any possibility of retrofitting a 2016 Three w/ATP to get BSM, or no? Would be nice, but I can understand if it can't be done.

    Back to the wiring, thanks for the pictures btw -
    Where did you connect into the existing signal system? Did you have to run it all the way into the cabin/fuse box?

    Thank you. I searched your site earlier and did not see them.

    BTW, I think there is a typo in your Accessories menu. It lists Lightning but is missing the Thunder to go with it :LOL: All I saw was Lighting.

    All connections were made at the BCM with the exception on the puddle light. This was done at the A Pillar.

    Unfortunately I didn’t document the install very well & only got this pic on the connections.

    You would have to wait for the next Install for me to get better pics.

    Here’s a few random shots the customer took

    If you can do a DIY on which wire to tap into go get right/left signal, puddle light, drl light would be great.

    Exactly. So far it’s been quite.

    Nothing done yet but have been actively working to get folding mirrors just like the gen3.

    Are you getting a Gen 4 or a Prime?
    Several Prime users have customized. They do not yet have their own dedicated thread though.

    yea, thats cool, this thread might make me buy a 4th gen sometime next year if it takes off lol. Ill stick with my Gen 3 for now tho... hopefully getting the Aimgain type5 bumper and stuff.

    My dad is considering selling his 2013 auris touring sport in favor for a 2016-2017 prius or prius prime tho. So that might tempt me to get one aswell lol, even tho i cant afford one as of right now.
    hope it comes more cool useful mods like the mirror indicactors, in Norway i think all 4th gen`s comes with power folding mirrors and mirror indicators, but i would defintely change them just to get the light up pattern the ones up in this thread got lol.
