    I cannot find any compatible tow mirrors for my Platinum Tundra. Been told by A1Auto, CIPA, K Source, and dealers there are no towing mirrors which are compatible. Clip ons don't fit and the strap ons fall off. Been there, done that. The Platinum edition is not like any other Tundra made. Mirrors are different size with more features than other Tundra models. I've been told that due to wiring and connections, mirror swaps must be apples to apples. I haven't found anything out there that has the same features.....heated, electric adjustment, puddle light, blind spot warning system, electric fold in, and turn signal. They say that only missing on feature of a replacement mirror will make the replacement incompatible. Would Toyota really make a $50K truck that can't tow, even though they advertise it as being able to tow all kinds of things? Sounds like VW's claims which bragged about the vehicle being able to meet emissions standards!!! I bought one of them as well. :( (VW buying it back next month).

    When I ordered my 2016 Limited, the dealers computer showed tow mirrors to be incompatible with Blind Spot Monitoring. I deleted BSM to get my tow mirrors. They are also manual fold and the bottom section is manual adjust.
