 Post subject: MY18 Forester - Autodimming mirror?

For the US Foresters (EyeSight equipped models), there's an option for an auto-dimming mirror (with a redundant compass) or one with auto-dim (and compass) and HomeLink controls to let you open/close garage door etc from buttons on the mirror rather than have to find somewhere to keep the controller

Talking to the dealer where we ordered our 2.5i-S today, we couldn't find anything in the official parts catalog that seems comparable...

has anyone seen something or can point us in the right direction (I suspect it may be the search facility on their parts catalog as the first-aid kit was also hard to track down!) - would love something OEM that can be fitted before they deliver it, but open to aftermarket if that's an option without mucking up the warranty...

Source it from the US, not an option here as far as I’m aware. That’s how I got mine for the MY03. :geek:

thanks! Hate to think how complicated the fitting will be with EyeSight (unless there's a handy power connector somewhere in there!)

There was a plug in mine ready for it, so if it’s an option elsewhere, chances are the loom may already cater for it.
