Just wonder what effect this has on the auto-dimming mirror with the rear sensor hidden behind the headliner. The mirror in my 03 Impala had all the same features, but seemed much shorter (could have been because of the larger windshield). Curious if a mirror swap would help.

I'm with you, I have heard several visibility complaints in here about the Camaro. Fixed the "blind spot" one, about the side mirrors, by getting those little round convex mirrors (would never have a car without them).

But this thing about the rearview mirror is just something that I don't get at all. I don't know if maybe the SS Camaro's have a different mirror depending on the package they have, but I have a 1LT and I adjusted my seat all the way down, as far as it could go, and the last thing the mirror is to me...is in the way.

I did think it was cool though that they showed how to turn it upside down.

Ok, I spent 20 minutes of my life reading this threat, I am still asking myself Why?? Why??? Why did I read it. Oh well, you might try driving in reverse based on the percentage of reflection and based on the moon alignment on the 3rd dimension of the positive percentage of the rear glass with the ratio of 3.44 in a 12% latitude of the angle in direction of the thrust in reverse mode. WTF!!!!

I couldn't get my mirror to flip over, not enough slack in the wire.

I'm surprised nobody has a direct replacement part # yet. Junkyard mirrors are relatively cheap.

The mirror many of us get to install the backup camera is a tad larger than the stock mirror but it is able to move up towards the roof farther so it ends up taking up less windshield space. I like that solution best, plus the auto-dim does still work.
