    You'll need to check your body loom too then. It's not that difficult to add them in. I had to add everything wiring wise to my Meriva. Including getting standard non electric mirror looms and added all the mirror wiring as well as the folding wires.

    Not checked that yet, kinda just presumed the body side would have them and just the door looms would be different. Looks like the best way to go now is to get a spare loom from the breakers and strip it to get the extra pins/wires.

    Have a look through the thread. 2010 mirrors are taller, I don't think they are any wider so they might use the same base but I could be wrong about that. I'm sure there was a guy earlier on in the thread saying his were factory fit on his 2010 with the larger mirrors so it sounds like it can be done.

    I've now fitted this to my Astra TwinTop and all I can say is what a headf**k.

    Fitted as instructions and everything was the wrong way round (Folded in when unlocked, Unfolded when deadlocked)
    So swapped the lock/unlock feeds rounds. Worked correctly until.....you turned the Ignition on, they folded in (so you had to unfold manually. Not quite the point really)

    So this morning, i've swapped the lock/unlock feeds back to as they should be. Then swapped the unfold and fold feeds from the switch and module to the opposite sides.

    It now works as it should, and if you override them with the switch (sat in the car and fold the mirrors in), turning the ignition on unfolds them.

    My 2011 VXR (MY10) has the bigger mirrors, noticeably bigger than my friends 2007 VXR. I would have thought the earlier smaller mirrors could easily be retrofitted.

    Just finished this myself. What a headache it was. Took me most part of the day. Mirrors now fold from key fob. However the button on the switch doesn't do anything. All other functions on switch work as they should. Any ideas why I can't use the button.

    Did you cut the Black/green and Black Brown wires and put the module "between" them like below?

    I had to add the wires to the switch as I don't have the correct loom, but they are wired as per diagram, both retracts together and both extracts together go into module.
