Aftermarket Mirror Install


Recommended Posts

Greetings all.

Has anyone had any luck installing a Gentex/Mito Corp aftermarket mirror in their pcar? I'm looking to take care of installing an auto-dimming mirror with Homelink controls and it appears Mito has a good solution.

http://www.mitocorp.com/homelink_mirrors.htm

It appears they make a foreign car adapter...which I imagine is for cars with twist on/off mirrors. However, it appears Porsche is not one of the manufacturers supported with this adapter. I'm trying to avoid a rocker switch/dash hack for my garage doors, while addressing the lack of auto-dimming mirrors in my Carrera.

My undersatnding is that Gentex is the OEM for Porsche mirrors.

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with these products in their pcar?

Thanks in advance.

The one I was looking at (GENK40) was around $285.

I spoke to Mito Corp...they cautioned me of the possibility of cracking the windshield when removing the glued on OEM mirror clip. They recommended having a universal Homelink transmitter installed in my sunvisor rather than trying to remove & glue a new mirror bracket on the glass.

For some reason I think the sunvisors on pcars are too small to have a Homelink transmitter installed.

Do you know if the "twist on" adaptors in our cars is the same as on a BMW? There is a guy that sells mirror adaptors for BMW's that twists onto the existing mirror mounting button/clip and converts it into a universal mount that a Mito mirror will attach to. I have purchased these for several of my M cars that didn't have self-dimming mirrors. I currently have one on an M coupe with a Mito mirror attached. They are available in two different thicknesses/depths depending on the car and your height to better place the mirror adjustment limits.

For more info see http://www.z3mirrors.com/default.htm.

Good Luck,

Dwayne
