    The bracket will be for the rain sensor bud, if you want to go the whole hog, you'll need the rain sensor, either a new windscreen or some black film cut to the correct shape and chances are you won't have the loom fitted

    Then you'd need the mirror programmed in for full function

    Basically mate, it'll work without tech 2 (or other) but programming it in will stop the mirror dimming when the car is in reverse and when the drivers door is open.....depends how fussy you are.

    When buying a rain sensor you could also fit the auto light switch and with some tech 2 it'll also work

    dont think you'll need the 'tech 2' should just be a case of fit the mirror onto your windscreen attach the loom/ribbon cable,feed this from the front of the car under the roof cloth to the left side of the boot and plug it in,on the bottom of the auto-dim mirror there is a LED light mood lighting of the gear stick area) this will be more visable at night,lets you know it has power aswell,as for the surrond hen i fitted mine i fitted the surround of a zafira,its a bit smaller in size

    I got EVERYTHING from a certain ebay seller for 60 quid.....that was the roof loom, rear interior light, illuminated sun visors, map lights, auto dim mirror and rain sensor.

    Tbh it's worth dropping the headlining and just doing the lot I went one step further and fitted a new windscreen but that was just me being extreme

    Most of the pre-face cars have the loom but....you'll need a facelift loom with the wiring for the light sensor
