Default 2013/14 New Style Photochromatic Mirror Retrofit

Past threads discussed this problem: old style auto dimming rear view mirror doesn't work when spoiler shadows light sensors on bottom edge of mirror.

Solution: mid-2012 and up auto-dim (photochromatic/ photochromic) rear view mirrors have light sensor inside UPPER part of mirror glass so even the big spoilers don't shadow sensor; auto-dimming works flawlessly on cars with big rear spoilers.

If anyone is interested, I can elaborate with part #s/wiring.
