I think it's the same thing as the lancer. I know for sure the JDM Lancers do the same damn thing, so it's not special to Evo's, that can widen your search for switches AND the powered mirrors.

Bumping this thread since I also did this, I got the OEM switch to work, and also the JDM ETACS unit, so my mirrors fold in with 3 clicks on the fob, and they unfold once I reach 40km/h. I used my LHD mirror bases so there's no problem at all when looking at the mirrors. It's awesome, I can't believe I almost sell all my folding mirror setup! Video coming soon.

What's all involved for a Stock IX 5spd to achieve this? Preferably wired into my stock fob lock/unlock, but I could live with an aux switched remote.

If your arm can reach the other side of the car then it's not that hard at all

The key to have the mirrors to work perfectly is to have:
- Both mirrors ( then swap bases)
-Mirror switch with folding button
-ETACS unit from an evo with folding mirrors (this is crucial, it's the "relay")
-Wiring diagrams, and some extra wires to run ( one from switch to etacs, the from from left side mirror to etacs and another from right side mirror to etacs.)

There's a set on ebay UK, but it doesn't include the ETACS.

Very cool and useful for a DD car. I assume the JDM mirrors weigh more?

I didn't weigh them, maybe the OP did? But they should be heavier since they have additional stuff inside.
Just to clarify, the video posted is not mine, I didn't make this thread, I am just posting here since I did the same mod as the OP did
