2007 Mustangs To Be Equipped With Auto-Dimming Mirrors

Gentex Auto Dimming Mirror With Compass - Available On 2007 MustangsFor the first time ever, new Mustangs will come equipped with automatic dimming mirrors courtesy of the Gentex Corporation. The auto-dimming mirrors are said to automagically darken to reduce glare from the headlamps of vehicles approaching from the rear. The brighter the glare, the darker the mirrors become.
