    Is it possible to fit an Autodim rear view mirror to a CLK that has a manual dip mirror?

    Yes, very simple, just requires an ignition switched power supply and an earth. If you look in the front dome light there are often connections there.

    Brilliant. Thanks. If I get one with garage door opener buttons, would they work on any garage door or gate?

    No idea on that, surely dependant on the frequency response of the garage door device but presumably they operate with a set range of frequencies ?

    Guess I'll have to look into it a little further. Thanks for the help!
