Why can't they be used as turn signal indicators as well?

No, they are wired directly to battery and have zero connections with headlamp assembly

Thanks for the clarification. I guess Dan from Drivebright will make an alternative in the future. Or at least hopes he will!

These may not be exactly what you need, but there are others.

Did you wrap them in place or did you remove them first?  I'm still looking for a way to tint the tail light lens all the way across the back, but it is just too contoured for me to wrap it.   Did you tint yours just around the edges or something?

Auto manufacturers have been trying to out LED each other for a few years now.  I do think they make vehicles easier to see but it would be nice if we had a choice to run them or not.  Should be pretty easy to disconnect them or even add a switch.

I wrapped them on the car, also tinted the LED on the mirror to match. Searching for a better image. I haven't tackled the back yet. A few members have. LaminX roll was what they did. I want my painted for that gloss look, but these tails are too expensive to replace when I get pulled over for them being tinted!

Thanks again Nick.  I'm pretty much over trying to find a decent option for tinting the rears.  I also looked into buying a second set, but yes, way too much $$ as usual.  Even the HID headlight assemblies are over $1,000 a piece!!  Everything is so modular these days, so most times when buying parts, you don't even need most of what you were forced to buy.

I had the same issue on my 2011.  After searching ebay and salvage yards with many near hits to my fully optioned mirror (electrically fine), I ended up getting it online at Levittown (a sponsor of this site).  Best online price, and likely a discount if you reach out to their thread.  Benny was very helpful.  Mine actually came with the correct painted black cover

 

I paid $315 (with no sales tax in my state)

here's the link to Levittown Ford showing mirrors for a  2016 SEL (not sure what you have).  Price depends on options in your mirror, but I see a power folding chrome on that's $479! ($125 more than any of the others).  Benny discounts from there
