    just purchased a new 2017 Tundra crew max platinum 4x4 and to my surprise no towing mirrors are available for it. WHY WHY WHY.
    You pay 53000 for the top ov the line Tundra which comes standard with a towing package yet no towing mirrors are available For this Platinum package.
    I upgraded from an ST5 with tow mirrors which worked great.
    Now because the Platinum has BSM, auto dim, turn signal, heated, auto fold and memory. Toyota does not offer compatible Tow mirrors. How hard is it to scale up the standard tow mirrors to fit the Platinum?
    I am very disappointed in the idiot who made this decision. The factory tow mirrors are already 900.00. So why can they upgrade them with the full Platinum package and charge a little more. This is a big Safety Issue. If you include a tow package with the vehicle it should come with tow mirrors.
    If anyone knows of any after market tow mirrors which have all the functionality let us know.

    I have the 1AAuto tow mirrors on a 2013 Platinum. You lose puddle light and auto dim but keep memory, heat, power fold, turn signal. 1A also has ones with BSM for the newer trucks. They have the extra light for parking light (running light) but it does not work with Platinum (known issue). I like them but my passenger side does have some play in it with bothers me a bit. By play I mean where it folds it has movement. Really thinkkng about getting a replacement as they have a lifetime warranty. I really wanted to keep the power fold feature but not pay $800 for OEM. Mine were $360 or so.

    I'm not sure why Toyota doesn't include the tow mirrors with the platinum trucks. There has to be a reason, but why?

    $53k huh? These 1/2 tons are getting spendy.

    I have the power folding, auto dimming, auto adjust, heated tow mirrors from Toyota. I did loose the BSM but the blind spot mirror keeps me out of trouble. They were expensive and the parts manager saying they won't fit. Direct fit, plug and play.

    Nice, I didn't know any were available with the auto-dim feature.

    These have to be aftermarket that the parts manager found somewhere, because I'm sure @Roman will confirm that these features don't exist on a OEM tow mirror. With that being said, if you have tow mirrors with auto dimming and memory, please let us know where they can be acquired, because I can splice in an LED as a workaround for the BSM.

    To my knowledge, there is no auto dimming tow mirrors with memory from Toyota.

    The stock platinum mirrors are heated, built in turn signal, and power folding?

    Will they plug right up into a 15 SR5? Cracked a mirror a while back and would like factory mirrors w turn signals
