OLM Wide Angle Convex Mirrors
This upgrade is a must have for drivers who value being aware of their surroundings at all time. Lane merging can be a difficult task with plain OEM mirrors. However, these mirrors give you the field of vision to invoke confidence on the road.
They're designed to be an OEM style replacement for the original mirrors. This means no adhesive. Snap the old mirrors out and snap the new ones in. If you have defrosters (non base models), you can detach the wires from the original and attach them to our mirrors.
As an added feature, these have LED turn signals built in. When they're off, they are basically invisible. Flip your turn signals on and you improve the awareness of vehicles around you. They are simple to wire if you already have turn signals in the mirrors from the factory. Just tap or solder the two new wires into the existing wires. If you have a vehicle that did not have these, you can remove your door panel, remove the mirror and run the wiring inside the vehicle. Existing wiring in the door will allow you to hook these up.
Also for vehicles with blind spot detection, you can retain it with this mirror. This is standard on the 2016+ STI Limited, WRX Limited manual with Option Pkg #22, and WRX Limited CVT with Option Package #23.

Sold as a pair.
A difference you can see
- OEM quality fit
- LED Turn Signals
- Defrosters included
- Blue coating to reduce glare
All 2015 WRX / STI models have turn signal wiring inside their door harness. If you already have a turn signal in your mirror, you can attach the wires inside the housing. For 2015 WRX Premium, base, and Limited owners that did not opt for the factory turn signal mirrors, you can run the wires into the door and attach them close to the harness plug.
Every 2015 WRX / STI except base models have side mirror defrosters. For these vehicles, the defroster wires can be disconnected from the older mirrors and reattached to the new mirrors in a matter of seconds. Base owners can attach the defroster wiring (+ positive) to the red wire with green stripe at connector B97. Attach the black wire from the mirror to the chassis at any location which makes contact with the body (- ground).
Both the SubiSpeed mirror turn signal and the factory mirror turn signals utilize LED technology. Unlike halogen bulbs, they will be at full power almost instantaneously. Since they are using the same circuit, they should blink at the exact same time.

The easiest way to install these is to pop out the black trim on the bottom of the rear view mirror. You can pry with your fingers from the corner nearest the vehicle. Once you remove this piece, removing the paint matched mirror cover becomes simple.
You may need to use a screwdriver to assist you in pushing out the bottom two clips in the mirror. They should be visible from the back side of the mirror. Use force on the bottom of the mirror with one hand, and push it from the back side with the other. If the mirror does not pop off with a few pounds of force, try moving the location of the screwdriver and / or pulling the mirror at a different angle.
Swing the mirror out from the bottom to detach the clips on top. Unplug the defroster wires if applicable.
Reverse this process to reinstall the new mirrors.

Some installation bumps but now working
Installation was a bit of a challenge, mostly related to wiring but its working now without an issue. Installation video was helpful in getting the cover off and OEM mirror unattached.
With the limited trim I needed to t-tap into the integrated turn signal which had green and white wires. I assumed that the solid black from the mirror would connect to green while the black with white stripe would connect with the white. On both sides the t-taps that were provided didn't work so I soldered the passenger side and it worked without an issue. On the driver side, I found the wiring was reversed on the mirror so I had to switch the connection between the provided cable and the mirror (i.e. plug the black with white stripe into the solid black wiring) and its working now.
Happy with the wide angle view and integrated turn lights. Factory blind spot monitoring work just fine.
