    If you want to know about electric folding mirrors, speak to lofty. Send him a private message, I'm sure he'll be happy to help. Not sure bout the rain sensor though. Someone will post something no doubt!

    Sure is

    You need all the parts, roof loom and a tech2 session. If you're doings the wipers you only need the switch for the auto lights and you could get that as well (it worked for me anyway).

    its not that bad to retrofit those quite simpel actually... took longer to source the parts.. (ive done it to )

    just remember the rainsensor... then you need new windscreen.. and the you have to get a rainsensor to match.. if you have heat damped windscreen, its not just evry sensor you can use ect.

    The rest should be usable from your current mirrors to move over.

    yes

    But it all depends on what you have in the car all ready. And your dealers will probaly say it cant be done and they cant find the apopriate parts... ill look after my parts list somewhere.. when i orderd all the parts to fit a LHD...

    jabbakot -> if you want i can try and find all part nr. for your Opel.. as they are probaly the same as mine.. i guess you dont have the dimming mirror (passenger wing mirror and rear view mirror) either or electric seats? (you can pm me your VIN and ill can check what your car has and what it needs to get the dimming mirror and rainsensor..) and do you have a heat reflective windscreen?
