The OEM mirror is about $250 and should be plug and play.
Issue with OEM replacement w/ Homelink:
a) Homelink will not work unless ignition is on.
I replaced the mirror with a new one for a KIA Soul (~$100 on ebay) which included the Homelink garage door openers and a compass. For some stupid reason, the connectors and pin positions are different between the NIRO and SOUL.
a) A new (included) wiring harness needs to be installed and run down to the fuse block area or the replacement and OEM stock mirrors need to be opened and the replacement rewired to use original harness.
b) No switched 12VDC line is available unless you wire to the fuse block.
c) No schematic available for the KIA Soul mirror and I was unable to connect the line that disables the LCD dimming when in reverse. I found out the hard way, if you connect the reverse line to the wrong input on the mirror, the transmission starts acting up and throwing error codes. I just decided to not use that feature.
d) Advantage to rewiring the harness from the mirror is that the plug on the vehicle wiring harness remains unchanged and can be plugged back into OEM mirrors if needed.
e) Homelink will not work unless ignition is on, unless a wire is run to the fuse block.
I was perfectly capable of doing the work myself and saved $150.
