Aftermarket 03-07 tow mirror quality?

Like title says. I'm gonna be adding the upgraded turn signal tow mirrors and was wondering about the quality of some of the aftermarket sets. I'm looking at a set from headlightdepo.com atm. Any thoughts or suggestions? I went to ford parts.com and looked at a complete set from hem including paint to match covers and almost fell out of my chair when I saw what they wanted for them.

cummin is the mess left behind by strokin!!

That is a matter of opinion haha. My uncle just bought brand new f250 and I think they look ok on that body style alone. No way do they look good on my body style imo. A1auto you say. Anybody that has bought from a1 chime in please.

Idk what aftermarket brand I had (05-07 style) but the heater didn't work worth the crap.. Also the mirror itself had more vibration from the road. Other than that it was ok.

I found a OEM mirror and would probably pay for one again if I need to replace one.
