    my old car had an auto dimming rear view mirror , would it be possible to retro fit one to my c180 easily ? is the wiring already there or would that need doing as well ?

    You need the mirror and a small loom which plugs into the overhead control panel. Make sure you get the right mirror though as there are lots of types. for instance cars with phone pre-wire have the microphones in them and then of course there are different colour variations too.

    Wouldn't you just end up with the same one you already have?
