What I was told were power folding mirrors turned out not to be, but they are gunmetal grey, and are JDM. How hard are they to find in this color?

Don't really know about that - or really what exactly you ask -

I just bought a pair of the power folding mirrors - in the color I wanted - Super White - but I haven't mounted or even tested them yet - I need some extra relays and TIME.

I am pretty sure folding mirrors are standard in Japan? I have never seen a JDM car without them. Are you sure? Maybe they just didn't include the right wiring and stuff?

Just be thankful you didn't sell them to anyone under the guise as power folding. Can o' worms right there.

Thats why they were pulled and checked before a sale was made. All they have is a big spring behind the glass, no motor housing.

Ahhh, they are POWERED mirrors (for adjustment) and they FOLD in (by hand) but they are not POWERED FOLDING mirrors like you would find on the JDM versions.

Correct. Except they are JDM because I can't adjust them right so that I can see out of them, even at the extreme adjustment that I had them at.

odd

thats unique but kinda sucks, because at that point you could have just gotten 6th gen mirrors, yes they fit.

It's not the point though. I was trying to sell them under the assumption they were power folding, not power, folding mirrors.
