I fitted mine about a month ago, the pics make the product look cheap but the reality is they look so much better in the "flesh".
A worthy upgrade imo
Very much agree, very pleased with the quality when I installed them for the first time about 4 years ago on my last car, one failed after about 18 months, but that was it, rock solid since.
I'm personally ok with throwing 20 or 30 quid on a set of replacements if they only ever last 4 years!

Hi, I have fitted these very same wing mirror indicators onto my XE, but instead of removing the mirror glass I just got a firm hold onto the bulbous part of the door mirror cover and lifted it up swiftly to remove it giving access to the two screws to remove the indicator panel and fit the new - very quick! :D
I can confirm this way - maximum 6min per mirror :).
You can see it on this video (it is XF, but the same mirrors)



And I bought this one (paid more):

Excellent! I was going to link to your post in my original post, but doesn't look like I can edit my post.

I tend to write my "guides" mindful of people who may not be used to performing their own maintenance or the likes, there's a good bit of brute force in doing it without removing the mirror, less so with mirror removed - but both certainly equally valid!

Just for a little more information on these, there are 2 different styles of these indicators, a dark smoked look and a slightly lighter frosted look.

These both flash in exactly the same way but the dark smoked ones are noticeably dimmer in operation than the lighter frosted look ones, although the frosted ones still look dark when fitted on the car and not being used.

I bought both sets to see which I preferred and now have the darker set for sale if anyone is interested. £20 Inc. postage. :D

I'd assumed that, on XEs from MY20 onwards, which have the animated main direction indicators, the door mirror repeaters would also be animated. I've just checked mine on my MY20 and, no, the repeaters are the same rather feeble ones as they've always been, which just a rather dim light at each end. Shame!

Hi.
Can anyone help as I'd love to get a pair of these dynamic indicators.
I own a 2018 xe r sport p250 auto, is my car a x760
Or other as I have put my car details in on several e bay sites and all say my car is not compatible. Does anyone know why?
Many thanks

Had the same problem, have a 2017 XE Portfolio 2.0 D 180 AWD and sites kept saying not compatible, in the end I messaged seller to confirm if they would fit
