08 fold in mirrors on ours?

Just a shot here, but is it possible to get the fold in motor from the 08's mirrors and put them on our mirrors? I rather keep our mirrors, just would like them to fold in when I park.

Why are they way better? I thought it was just looks/motor.

08 fold in mirrows

The new 08 fold in mirrows are nice, but I wish that they weren't so square
I wish you could get the fold out motors for the older style mirrows.

How easy is it to do the mirror swap to the 08. What is involved in the electronics to make them fold. Also are they power telescopic or manual. One last question where can you find the 08 mirror.

Thanks
