    Hi all.

    Do s3's have a auto dipping rear view mirror?.
    I cant tell if mine has...or if it works?.

    in the centre of the mirror glass theres an oval shape though?. does this do anything?.. it looks like someone has stuck a clear oval over the reflective part?.

    Also, i rear there is an option for a built in compass?...is this an easy mod?

    regards
    Callum

    It was an optional extra on the S3's. Here's a picture of the one in my old S3:

    mine has the little sensor on the bottom... so i guess its just been played with.

    I dont think a new mirror will be cheap either.
