Exclamation Auto-dimming rear view mirrors?

I have noticed that a few people have 'Auto dimming mirror' in the description of their cars - just wondered if this is something you have to have factory fitted or if you can do a retro fit?

Thanks.

I think MY09 cars come fitted with it? Maybe it's an optional extra.

You can buy one from Honda and retro fit it but they're 200-300 I think.

Might be able to get one cheaper somewhere or there might be some decent aftermarket ones out there?

I was thinking of getting one at one point but IMO, it would be a waste of money. The centre brake light/spoiler blocks most headlights anyway.

While an auto dimming rear view mirror is normally a very useful thing to have, there is no real need for it on the current Civic for exactly the reason you state.

Can anybody confirm if some models do have this feature please?
I would be surprised at Honda if this is the case.

Confirmed. Some models have it factory fitted, some don't.
