I just found out that auto dimming mirrors are only offered in prestige option... (really? for a +$35,000 luxury brand SUV?) :(

Would it be possible to retro-fit an auto dimming rear view mirror? Do you know if there is a wire already there?

I believe the wire is already there - AND lucky you. I have a brand new Q3 auto-dimming mirror with compass. If you're interested in buying it, PM me and we can chat there about it...

Really? I'm pretty sure mine is autodimming with compass (unless it has a light sensor and power button just for show). Maybe I'm missing something?

I'm assuming only by reading the description of the premium option vs. prestige option. (only prestige option highlights auto dimming/power folding mirrors)

Does your premium have auto dimming mirrors?

Oops! I must have had my beer goggles on. I see premium has interior auto dimming rear view mirrors now. (face palm)

I guess they figured that since we're already spending so much they might as well charge for specific things like that, even more so being a feature people really want.

Yep, just the external ones that have an option for folding on the Prestige model!

I thought you meant the rearview mirror inside, not the side mirrors outside. I didn't expect the Premium only version to not have that either, but trusted your observation by example...
