Auto dimming interior mirror

Hello,

has anyone tried to use auto dimming interior mirror for fiat Bravo? does it work without any problem? Maybe fiat linea's or fiat punto evo's one fits for fiat bravo?

By the way, it is a really shame that a car like fiat bravo doesn't have it!

Re: Auto dimming interior mirror

Hi guys!
There is a few bravo's with retrofitted auto dimming interior mirror here in Poland. Guys here use the one from Fiat 500 and it does work like a charm!
Worth buying if you drive a lot after dark.

Re: Auto dimming interior mirror

I find it useless since the most of the glare actually comes from the side mirrors rather than the interior one.

Re: Auto dimming interior mirror

My side mirrors are already chromated or whatever the technology is to reduce glare. The rearview mirror is the most glaring at night and I do find myself having to manually "flick" it to dimming mode. I'm going to keep an eye out for an auto one on eBay.

If I used that feature once a year I would be surprised.

Re: Auto dimming interior mirror

I think a lot of it depends on the type of driving you do.

I spend most of my time on 'A' and 'M' roads with many badly adjusted lights behind me.

The chromatic mirror I had in my old Scorpio was a real treat, quickly and efficiently removing the glare which was directly in my eyes.

Can't recommend them highly enough - great idea and should be rolled out everywhere as a safety feature (in my opinion!).
