No automaticly dimmed inside mirror

Hi,

I have question.

Can someone explain why cx-3 has no auto dimmed inside mirror, because other mazda models like cx-5 are occupied with it.

Given that we do not spec the vehicles in production, no.


It has been discussed and is a mystery to all of us.

The auto-dimming mirror can be added as an option.

Is the standard mirror in the US touring spec an electric or mechanical dimmer? Mechanical being the type that you need to redirect the mirror pane. Anyone have a pic?

However hopeful you are, I'm afraid it's the same as the 1979 Mazda 323. I've thought about a set of rods and levers that go right round the roof liner, down the side window, across the carpet and into the centre armrest where I can control it with a slider under my thumb. I would then post this abomination on the Mazda Global Sales blog page just to make them cringe in front of the worlds motoring press.

I'm glad it doesn't. I hate those things. I'm more than capable of flipping the mirror if it's too bright.

I have installed an eBay Homelink auto-dimming mirror in my CX-3 GT. Just have to make sure the mirror post is long enough to clear the sensor box. I have a couple posts in here about the problems.

I had the autodimming on my MX5. It's kind of horrible. In any city or lit area it doesn't dim, so you get blinded.
