Need a little help. I think this is the right part.

Will this part work on our cars not originally equipped with power folding mirrors (I haven't popped mine out so not sure if harness will fit)?

If it is right, great, I'll get it. If it's not, please direct me to proper part.

-Thanks

that's not the folding mirror switch, just the power mirror switch. you need the one with this picture at the top:

The harness will work-it is literally just one of the pins is missing on the non-folding switch, but the harness has the recepticle. It's a bit to get out (still a 5 min job just snug) and pull the harness out, then unplug and replace. Be careful not to mar the leather when popping it out with a screwdriver.

I did not get the power folding mirrior option, but do you mean to say that my 2011 Evora has the nessesary wiring and motors to use the power mirrors, but the only part missing for me to acess this is a pin? And ordering this new switch will provide access to the power folding mirror option?

Yep. Just need the switch. There was a long thread about this in the spring.

Did it on my MY11 in about 5 min:up:

it will make more sense when you pull the factory (non power folding) switch out, and look at the harness and the switch.
