I was going to buy the auto dimming rear view mirror with the compass, but I am concerned about how difficult it is to install. How do I wire power to it? I have looked online for instructions on installation, but cant find any. I hate to buy the mirror and then find out that it is beyond my (minimal) ability. Has anyone done this, or does anyone know if it is an easy install?

the wiring might already be there, because it is an option on all trim levels isn't it? i remember reading somewhere that the wiring is in place for fog lights on all trim levels, so maybe its the same deal with the wiring for the mirror

i have a 03 se, and i've installed my own auto dimmed mirror
depend on how you want to wire it,
the instruction i used is the same paper dealer technicians use,
basically you have to take apart the driver side console, starting from the driver side door, and tap the + and - wires at the 'flasher', located right above the left foot rest under the driver side console. (that is what the paper read), and run the wire along the a pillar to the ceiling. took me about 2 hours, but if i were to do another one, probably just 30 minutes job.
