    When they were fitted from factory they used a different windscreen,had a part blacked out for the wiper sensor and cover to make it look tidy,but i fitted mine and it doesn't look out of place and there's a mirror for sale on ebay too......

    you could also cut out your own tint to go under the mirror cover... saves needing a new windscreen.
