I would like to have exterior lighting on the side of my awaited MDX.

So when I hit the remote, it triggers lights to illuminate the ground,and surrounding area.

Could run off the same timer as the interior light I imagine..

could it be as simple as just running a couple wires on each side, and using a HO led? small hole drilled on the bottem of the mirrors?

What do you think?

It's possible, connect with existing interior lighting circuit. If you don't mind 'drilling' into your MDX. There may be alternatives like snaking wires through the mirror assembly. Maybe have an LED behind the side mirror itself might have an interesting effect, as well as provide light for accessing vehicle at night.
I do like those ones that shine down from the bottom of the mirrors, they are cool. Of course if you are only interested in lighting the ground, you could have the leds underneath the car, and probably mount with double back tape, etc.

Me neither. Neat idea though...I like those "puddle lights" on the bottoms of the rearview mirrors that the Lexus LS430 has.
