    Default Rear view mirror

    Just been out to the car to try a CD ,sat there with the lights on and the ignition in pos 1 , then turned it to 2 and noticed a slight increase in illumination , thought it was my eyes at first then i eventually found a yellow Led /bulb in the base of the rear view mirror , is this across the range or just higher spec models .

    Indirect night lighting, think most cars had it as standard until about '04' / '54' onwards. Then extra cost option on some models. Mine has it, makes a difference at night

    It's lovely on a long dark motorway cruise at night, subtle but pleasant.
