Question Electrochrome door mirrors

Can the standard door mirror glass on an 53 & 55 plate Initiale be converted to Electrochrome, if so is it just a matter of replacing the glass or is wiring work involved

Hi Barry

I believe there is a lot more involved than just replacing the glass.

Hopefully a Member who is familiar with your model will offer some advice.

I think he means auto dipping, like the rear view mirror on some cars. I have heard of some cars with auto dipping door mirrors but I guess they would need sensors etc like the rear view mirrors.

Could be wrong though!

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
