However, I'm concerned that with the signal lights contained within the mirror assembly adding weight and perhaps a critical weak point in its construction, in conjunction with some pretty severe vibration at the ends of those big bars, this will be a chronic failure due to design weakness. Thus an improvement is needed since both of the mirrors failed in exactly the same way.

Euro spec Stelvios come with the indicators in the bodywork & ordinary mirrors. I believe some on here have already done the conversion in the US, have a look in the main Stelvio thread.
