Thanks to the67beast and his do-it-yourself post:

http://www.forteforums.com/forums/d...ide-mirror-case-removal-led-light-change.html

I was able to determine that the 2011 mirror covers and LED lights will fit on the 2010 mirror. I'm waiting for my 2011 mirror covers (scalp) to get painted and then I will start the install of the 2011 mirror covers and LED lights on my 2010 Koup. Will post pictures as I progress on this.

FYI
2011 Scalp (Mirror cover) PNs:
(LH) 87616 1M005
(RH) 87626 1M005

2011 LED Light Assembly PNs
(LH) 87614 1M005
(RH) 87624 1M005

If you have a cool parts department you should be able to get all 4 parts for $100-$125.

Not sure yet if the wiring of the 2010 will just plug into the 2011 LED light assembly -- but I'm sure I can splice as needed when I start.

NOT FOR THE NOVICE DO IT YOURSELFER! See post 46 for modifications!!!

Thank you! I've been searching everything so I can get started on this mod. Can't find anything on the interwebs and three dealers told me they can't find the part numbers. Now I have part numbers!

from the picture there doesnt even look like there is a conector or any wires tied into the leds.
The 2011 uses a different wire harness -- I intend to splice and use very small connectors to use the LED light assembly. Will try to post pics as I do it for everyone to follow.

Waiting on the paint shop...it's such a small job they probably won't get to them very soon...grrr...LoL

PM me and I will give you the number -- and they said they'd sell them for $125 plus shipping if you can't get them at your dealer.
