im thinking of retro fitting a auto dim rear view mirror to my 2011 fiesta zetec, i did this in my previous car a 2003 focus , it was a simple 2 wire conection earth and 12v from the sidelights , im thinking of the titanium mirror , has anyody done this and is it the same simple mod to fit im thinking of taking the feed from the the interior light that has the orange led sidelights they do come on with the ignition but if the mirror has a daylight sensor on the front of the mirror then it will only activate in the dark anyway.
after selling my focus 1.6 st170 replica and buying a 2011 fiesta 1.25 zetec for the mrs the mods have started , mist type washer jets, esp switch , powerfold mirrors ,led boot lights, reverse park sensors , pioneer rear door speakers ordered fit them as soon as they arrive (as ford didnt fit any in my rear doors ). replaced part leather steering wheel with a full leather one.
now looking for a illuminated gear knob if i can get one for a good price as the £75 they go for is a bit pricey. also maybe a rear interior light also. im not interested in performance just comfort practical extras.
im thinking of geatting a new ford illuminated gear knob for my 2011fiesta zetec, has anybody fitted one im not asking about the wiring up as ive done plenty of mods myself , im more concerned about the quality /finnish of it , is the shiney metal part of it coated or just polished steel , ive had polished gear knobs before on my old focus and it looked quite dull after a few months.
