    Indeed ... nearly 8 minutes of someone smashing you in the ghoulies with a sledge, doesn’t sound like much fun to me!
    ‘Cos the unspoken yet obvious truth is if a GLC-anything did it in X minutes, a C-anything with even half the momey spent on it would do it in X minus 45sec ... it’s just not physically possible for any gerlytruk to be anything but inferior to the real car it’s based on.

    I have never heard of that. And none of the part numbers fit that description either. Would be interested to see where you read that. It would be very handy at night too

    Google "chevy ss dimming side mirror" to the rescue o_O
    Chevy SS forum post
    G8nation forum post
    Chevy SS Owners Manual

    Gospel is obviously GM's manual which lists drivers side exterior mirror auto dims but I didn't read the whole manual as I already know we've been short changed on features.

    It feels gauling enough that the last of the Chevy SS' had features that were lacking in out MSE's while the Chevy SS' supposedly sold for a 20% discount to quickly clear inventory that i didn't want to clearify how many features we missed out on... Meanwhile some Holden dealers are still dreamn...

    GM follows Trumps "America first" doctrine while our own Holden screws us on price and lacking features :mad: meaanwhile, some Holden dealers are still price dream'n:oops:

    Ah
    So only the US drivers side.
    It looks like they are trying to see if our passengers side dims so they can get both.

    I think you mean the US guys are wanting to get out drivers side auto dipping exterior mirror so they can mod their passenger external mirror to get two working external auto dipping mirrors. Problem is, did any Aussie Calais/Director or even Caprice get auto dipping external mirrors? I think not :( but not 100% sure :rolleyes:

    I’ve never understood the idiotic logic of only an internal auto dimming mirror on supposed upmarket cars as anyone who has driven on a multi lane highway would know you can be blinded by both left and right external mirrors and the internal rear vision mirror.

    If the manufacturers and regulators didn’t have their collecting heads up each other’s back passage, all cars would have had these as a safety item years ago (along with mandatory reverse cameras which would have saved countless toddlers from being killed).

    Some owners in the US seem to want to fix GM/H’s deficiencies but without the parts, something about pushing and hills comes to mind. I wish them luck though.
