Auto dim interior rear view mirror

Cars with the interior lighting pack are not compatible  with the auto dimming rear view mirror option …… seemed like a challenge to me!

The ADmirror has a forward facing sensor to sense when it’s dark outside and a rearward facing sensor to pick up a following cars headlights. The internal structure of the lighting package mirror has two downlighters and some internal webs that make it difficult to fit the autodim mirror to the mirror/light shell. However a bit of tinkering and I managed to get it working!
