Quick wiring question

Ok, so I bought one of those LED mirror things where when you signal, the signal also appears on the mirror. I just think it would look cool. Now How do I wire these things? Didnt come with instructions which is supposed to... Well I was reading that I can splice the wires into the signal wires up front or run the wires to my fuse box? Which shall I do?

You've got a lot more on your plate than you originally thought. Your car has a module that monitors the current to each bulb and diplays a warning in the dash when one is out. Pulling too much current through that module can fry it. So that means it isn't gonna like any extra bulbs at all. If the current draw for the mirror bulbs is on the low side you may get lucky, but it is an expensive module to be putting your bet on being lucky.

If your car was manufactured before 10/86, it will work.
