2013 Frame less Mirror retrofit

Is the plug between the rear view mirror and the car the same on all 2010, 2011, and 2012 vehicles?

I'm trying to figure out if I can get a 2013 mirror to fit in my 2010... I figure it may be worth a try if the plug hasn't changed.

Here is a pic for those that haven't seen it:

When it does not work i will buy it from you, the connecter is the same but the wiring is not, 2010 and 11 dont talk to the BCM all the new cars mirrors do.

I am hoping that the 2013 mirror and radio can be retro'd into my 2012 SS. I am eagerly waiting on someone to post how to do this....as they both are sexy as hell in comparison.

retrofit to 2010 sounds interesting. This one looks very nice

I'd like it in my 2012 as well. I'm waiting for Ofer to figure out how to install the MyLink Nav system into the car first, then I can ditch the old mirror with the LCD in it.

Will the dimming feature work at least? I'm not as concerned about the OnStar and Phone stuff.

I don't actually have a mirror yet. I was planning on purchasing one if it would work though.

I think this mirror uses the Low Speed GMLAN serial data for auto-dimming. allowing it to compensate for the amount of light inside the vehicle like the display radio or Driver Information Center Display

If it did this I would assume it would need to have a light sensor somewhere near the mirror but not in the mirror. My current mirror only dims itself at night when there is light glaring right into it so I'm assuming the 2013 mirror will work the same way.

I ordered one so I report back on what happens when I plug it in. I'm expecting the OnStar stuff wont work but I'm hoping the dimming bit still works.

I'm waiting for mine also. The old mirrors do not have the auto-dim function in the buttons, the new ones have it. The light is intense in the day , and tenuous in the night.
my theory is that use the Ambient Light Sensor
