Do It Yourself: Yes
I had this idea since the retrofitting of the rain and light sensor but there was a setback, the windscreen. To have it fixed on the original windscreen is doable but it does not look proper and nice. Since I had my windscreen replaced, the idea of having it emerged. In PSA term, auto dimming mirror is called electrochromatic mirror, P/N: 8154.Jx and it is from 307 part bin actually.
It was so unfortunate for me that I had a cracked windscreen and to make thing worse, the replacement windscreen is not easily available here. Yup, I’m looking for the one that has rain and light sensor filter fitted from the factory since it is cracked, why not looking a proper windscreen for the sensor.
Rang my trusty supplier to pre-order the windscreen and after 4 months, it arrived at my doorstep (this is second shipment as the I had issue with the first, the reason for the long delivery period).
This will be the final mod which is related to my existing modifications on MFD and COMM2000. To have the rain sensor involves a large sum of cash if I want the outcome as according to factory specification. It requires a different type of windscreen which has all the necessary parts to fit the sensor. Alas, I’m still using my current windscreen because TBH, I was a bit skeptical on the end result. Let’s have some experiments first and I will deal with aesthetical features later on.
