Signal Mirrors?!?!

like some of the E30 owners on here, i currently don't have any front turn signals on my car so i decided to take the signal mirror route.

i saw a couple of them around town (prices ranging from $200-$400) so i decided to check ebay. what do you guys think of these ones? i currently don't have a big budget to spend on these and these mirrors look exactly like the ones selling here

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33649

has anyone tried these? any installation problems? also, they say 'power' but will it be compatible with my current mirror control switches? (oh yeah, don't worry i plan on changing that blue signal to amber!)

here's another pair i've found. they say all you have to do is directly switch the mirror cover. that does save me install cost plus the light is already AMBER!! problem is it is a little more expensive.

what do you guys think i should do?

I would install just regular side markers if you want it that badly.

i dont really want side markers just because they can only be seen from the side..atleast with the mirrors, they can be seen in the front
