If you have memory seats, you have loom (plug and play) - though all memory seats should have the mirror anyway.

If you don't have the memory seats, thats when you need to make those 4 connections ;)

How much did the ebay one go for?

I think TheBoy means that the auto-dim will work, but not the mirror memory postion?

Exactly.

I have one in the MV6, just wired for autodip, no memory seats.

Yes you can move it by hand, when you set the memory on the seat; it also remembers where the door & rear view mirrors are

The exterior mirrors are also memory, so you may want to consider changing these....

Unless your car was fitted with memory seats, it will have none of the loom...

just to point out the mounting bracket for the auto dimming mirror is different on facelift and pre-facelift.

So make sure one off eBay or where ever you get it is the right one!  :)
