Depending on what model you have and what features are fitted.

The rear view mirro may be auto dimming - there will be a sensor front and back to detect the difference in light levels, if more light is coming from behind to stop you being dazzled the mirror dims.

If you have climate control the "humidity" sensor will also be up near the rear view mirror.

Also you will also have "rain sensing wipers" if you have a Privilege or Initiale.
From 2004 models onwards you also have "auto lights" if you have a Privilege or Initiale and Expression. Auto wipers in Dynamiques.

So as you can see there is a lot of wiring in that area depending on what features you have, also even if they aren't fitted, chances are you will have the wiring loom in place.

Currently in SportTourer's garage:
2010 Laguna III SportTourer Initiale Tom Tom.
