Same here, I would love to do this. Please tell us how you did this
Just need to take out the existing mirror , to separate mirror and the housing just pour hot water let the mirror shrink to take it out than stick the led at the back of mirror attach back the housing tap wire to the signal that all .this the led I bough from ebay usd1.56 included delivery
thanks! are they visible in the daytime? For some reason i heard a lot of people having a hard time doing that mod on their C.
Daytime not visible due to the led is hidden at the back of mirror . Night time is awesome
i installed LED reverse lights and Replaced the bulb in the rear running light with a red LED.
wow, looks nice and clear. What and where did you buy your bulbs?

Did some personal touches inside. Painted the vents and the radio harness blue like the outside of the car. Also did the armrests.
I installed a back up camera today, it works great on my stock Navi radio.
I added a back up camera and blue footwell lights that turn on and off with my fog lights switch.
Here are pics
I thought I had posted these pics but I guess not. I did my dash in Flex blue plastidip
That looks pretty good! I tried plasti-dip first but didnt like it. So I ended up just doing spray paint. I like it better because it keeps the texture that is on the pieces and looks very natural. I did the arm rests too and I am going to do the speaker rings.
Plastidip takes a little practice to get it really nice. The radio cover actually kept the texture but in the pic it's hard to notice. I like the plastidip because of the fact I can peel it off. I'm actually going to redo it in a chameleon color in a few weeks, I just got all the pearls and dip to mix them together
Anytime I can use plasti-dip I agree it is the best choice. I just happened to like the color and look of the paint better, and figured if I really had to I could replace the plastic pieces pretty cheaply down the road if need be, or re-paint. You did a great job on the dash though. I am going to do my rims next, I have some black plasti-dip already waiting. I want to try to do the front bumper as well, I like how it looks.
I am thinking of using a Blues plasti-dip to do the sides of the tail lights. I know the blue will not match the car, but I think it will look better than seeing the clear tail lights from the side. Saw someone else on here did it with the Habenero color. I figured Ill try and I can always take it off.
Thanks, and if you use blue then use Flex Blue. The blaze blue will fade because it is not UV resistant. Any of the blaze colors are like that and they need a base color. flex blue does not need a base. Spray a couple of light coats first and then spray heavier coats after that. I was thinking of doing the same exact thing with my taillights on the sides. Good luck and keep up the good work
Thanks for the tip on the Flex Blue, I would have used the wrong kind!
Thank you kevtan for the idea. I finally got my 33 smd arrows from china and did the mod on both C's...only thing was I broke the very 1st mirror due to it being my 1st time messing with it (and bad technique), but I did learn my lesson ($15 for a replacement) and the next 3 mirrors went very smoothly and pretty fast.
I guess a step by step would be:
1) remove the mirror+holder from the motor by popping it off (my 1st mirror broke, b/c I was afraid to pop it off of the side mirror assembly, and was just hairdrying it, then trying to remove it with a boxcutter...which the force/pressure of the boxcutter made a crack straight through the mirror)
2) using a hairdryer (or kevtan used hot water, some youtubers used heatgun), I hairdryed the mirror+holder for about 4min or so to get the holder warm/hot and nicely expanded, then I just used my fingers to remove the mirror from the holder
3) a Cone, two, three should just have a piece of brown/tan tape on the back of the mirror (my wife's C4 had a sticker with heating element, b/c C4 comes with the autoheating side mirrors)...I just heated the tape a bit then peeled it back, put in the arrow signal, and put tape back over it, and also used some tape of my own over the arrows to hold it in securer
4) since C's already come with signal blinkers on the side mirrors (all your wiring is done), I just popped off the front of the side mirror assembly (4 pop out pins that hold it...and with the mirror+holder out of the side mirror assembly, those pins are easily reached with a screwdriver) and soldered the (+) and (-) wires to their respective wires, and sealed everything off with some silicone.
will make a clearer guide with pictures once my replacement mirror come in and I swap it out with the broken mirror. I'd rate it as easier to do then the backup camera (although there was no fear of breaking any mirrors with the backup camera)
I added blue lug nuts to match my car.
