Auto-dimming mirror...

I wrote a rant about the Box's lack of decent interior lighting compared to a lowly VW Golf at 1/3 the cost, but also a rave about this mirror feature that the prior owner spec'd for my car. The post got lost in the changeover, but there's new info..

Mine cost $600.* (half way down the "We Have No Shame" list) option including the outside driver's and interior mirror. LOVE IT.

I was not looking forward to all the 4WD pickups in my area getting behind me, but this attenuates their lumens so I am more comfortable in the cockpit.

A recent issue of AUTOWEEK had a an ad that caught my eye from these people...

As you'll see. You can have the major feature for a helluva lot less.

Jim

*including the rain sensor - another cool feature I was expecting to poo-poo.

I'd love one. Unfortunately when you go a little further on checking about the mounting brackets on their site, they state:

"*CANNOT REPLACE FACTORY MIRROR ON: HYUNDAI, PORSCHE, BMW, ACURA"

Which I presume means that you'd need to make/modify your own bracket... and it must not be easy or they'd be offering one themselves?

Donv: Go to your local autoglass place; they have to replace mirrors all the time, but ...maybe they do not provide a 'stalk': only the head, eh? Buggers.


BTW: It's $79 in the ad; $99. on the site?!
