Power Folding Mirrors

I was wondering how many guys in the US have power folding mirrors?
I am in the process of my install and have half of it done. Video this weekend

What are you using? Are the JDM ones power? I was thinking this the other day as I had some JDM power folding mirrors on my Si. I always fold my mirrors and would love an alarm system to do it for me.

Talking

With the stock JDM 8 GSR, if you push the "lock" button on the alarm three times and hold it for two seconds, all the windows wind up and the mirrors fold in. If you forget to open your mirrors, they automatically do so when you cross 40KMPH.

I've never seen a stock CT9A interior power folding switch/buton.

There is a button to fold and unfold the mirrors on the interior of the III-VI JDM.
