    I would love to do this on my '17 GT export model. Have anyone done it on an export?

    I am not aware of anyone, but it shouldn't make a difference. The parts fit and in the areas where you need to make changes to the wiring are no market-specific differences.

    Is it possible to skip both the LED and the BLIS mirrors and just go with voice alert? I am basically trying to do a simpler installation skipping all the door panel work. If the LED is needed, can I connect it directly to the sensors near the trunk?

    CTA would work with the alert from the IPC only, but BLIS will only signal through the LEDs. So you need the LEDs.
    In one of the previous posts someone added the LEDs only on the inside of the car without touching the doors.

    you could wire up a buzzer instead of an LED, but it would get very annoying very quickly :crackup:

    Will the F150 BLIS modules work on the Mustang? They look somewhat similar but the numbers are different.

    I think, they should work and they should look exactly the same. If not, then they probably will not fit.

    They are physically a little different and they may not fit the Mustang brackets, so don't want to take that chance. I found some Mustang sensors by narrowing my search to "Mustang EM2Z-14C689-A" - funny how with just the part number you get everything except what you're looking for. Thanks.
