Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the side markers and puddles were already LEDs?

Maybe, but I think they look too yellow for standard bulbs.

Hey I've done this - pull gently on the mirror and it pops out. Be careful of the heating (?) wires. Pull the gray rubber housing the globe up and out. If your LED's don't work reverse the polarity.

Love the non US mirrors...

That being said, I have the SE with the winter package, and I don't have lights under my mirrors, just the directionals. Is that normal?

Yes it is.
The SE w/ Winter Pkg only has the integrated turn signal in the mirror housing.
The SEL/Titanium trims offer the puddle lights as a bonus, regardless of the packages chosen.

looks like they removed the "puddle light" feature for all 2013's? I've got an SE sedan and don't have it.

Also, will our U.S. side mirrors pull out the same way in order to install side mirror bulb?

Thanks. :)

Should be standard on the Titanium models.
