    Hi Topline (don't shout though!).
    I believe it's not that straightforward and the autodipping mirror comes as part of the auto-wiper set-up. It's not just a case of wiring it up to power, as it's more sophisticated than that.......It only dips when the lights are on and a forward gear is selected. When you stop (engine running) or pop it into reverse, the mirror goes back to 'standard' silver. So, it'll need the proper dedicated power supply if it's to work properly with all these features.
    Someone might know different, lets see!

    Well, Mogsy fitted an Omega one onto a Vec B, so I guess anything is possible.
    There is a how2 here;

    http://vectras.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=21353

    But the pictures are not working at the minute, a result of a resent host change, I'll sort them out later, not got time to do that now.

    just to let you know i have managed to fit the auto dimming mirror when the wires have not been there. so the light works and the mirror also dims.

    when you get the mirror you have 4 wires,brown . black. white & black. and gray.you only need the black and the brown wires.i wired the mirror from the light in the ash tray because the light only comes on when you turn the lights on and not when the ignition is turn on.this is so the mirror works at the right time . so the brown went to the brown on the ash tray light,and the black wire went to live on the ash tray light.the biggest pain was getting the wire round from the ash tray to were the mirror is.
