No. The blind spot detection system uses radar sensors that are mounted inside the left and right rear bumper, in addition to the processor that actually interprets the sensors signal, those signals ultimately being transmitted to the LED's in each mirror.
In theory, this system could be added, along with the wiring harness and new window switch bank for the folding mirrors, but the cost for the parts and the labor to install would likely be prohibitive...not to mention what the Dealer would charge to enable both, if they would agree to do this do to the potential liability of the blind spot system not working as designed, failing to alert the driver of another vehicle being in the "blind spot".
