I ordered this mirror as a replacement to my cam mounted OEM mirror that stopped working recently. The mirror is great and works really well. However, the mount is a problem. It has a standard wedge-type mount, but my car has a cam style mount on the windshield. An adapter came with the mirror, along with very poor quality instuctions - couldn't really see the images - it had been photocopied way too many times. The adapter didn't quite fit over the OEM mount on the windshield, and in my trying to push the adapter over the mount, I CRACKED MY WINDSHIELD! So if you get this, make sure you grind out the adapter if it doesn't fit over the OEM mount - don't try to force it on! Also, screw holes in adapter plate are very suceptible to being stripped out - be careful when tightening the screws.

I bought the Gentex mirror to replace my broken stock mirror. It was a fairly simple install as it replaced a similar mirror. But, in the event wiring needed to be done, no wiring diagram was included.

worth the price

Easy installation. Once I figured out how to remove the original mirror in my Subaru Forester, it was very easy. The removal instructions for foreign car mirrors were included on another sheet which somehow became separated from the main packet. The OEM wiring plugged right into the new mirror without any modifications.

Vehicle came with auto-dimming/compass mirror that failed. Gentex plugged into existing harness, worked well immediately

Great mirror but inadequate directions, more complicated installation that was implied by the info on the web site for ordering it.
