    Default Auto dimming mirror

    I have noticed the rear view mirror dimming down on the motorway as iv been doing a bit of night time driving , is it possible that the drivers door mirror is also auto dimming aswell ? and if so should the passenger side dim aswell ?

    Yes some models had a dipping drivers mirror, but I don't recall a dipping passenger mirror, just a reversing aid on it of some sort.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    okies, lets clear this one up... The autodimming exterior mirror (drivers side) was mainly fitted to the 'elites' due to the extra wiring which is needed in the body loom. The actual glass does have a black rubber surround around it so that is how you would tell if yours has it or not. The passenger side one on the 'elites' have auto-dip which is where when you stick it in reverse it angles towards the ground so you can check your wheels against the kerb whilst parking.

    I havent noticed mine dipping when reverse selected (56plate elite) Ill check tomorrow, but if I move the drivers side mirror down the passenger one does aswell, it mirrors what i do with the drivers side etc, this is helpful for parking as you only have to move one mirror and both do the same.
