    Your mirror housing will need to have the relevant wiring for starters. It may already be in the loom going into it - not sure. You'll need to pop off your glass to see if you have spare wires. I think you also need the 'Upper' spec of DDM (Drivers Door Module). You also need, I'd think, to have the inside dimming mirror as that has the sensor on it that controls whether/when it dims.

    Could you get the same mirror but for a left hand drive one, and then have both doing it?

    I very much doubt the wires will be there if you had to wire up the auto dim one yourself, but you never know with VX...

    No, only the DDM can be programmed to make the glass dim.

    On the back of the auto dimming wing mirror glass is an extra 2 pin plug on the other end to the two connectors for the heating element. Also the mirror looks more orangy/yellow than a normal mirror. Got a replacement and this is what was supplied. When I connected the wires to the plug (thought it was a mod by Vx) noticed the mirror went darker whan I switched the heated bit on.

    part number on the box is 24461569.
    but if you don't have the extra wires in your mirror housing and the DDM then I think it probably won't work, but who knows??
