Hi everyone! first off, want to say that i just ordered my rock-some 5spd black tC and i am SO STOKED! i was looking at the accessories page at scion.com and it says that you can't combine the the auto dim mirror witht the side airbags. anyone know why this is? i am getting the airbags, but i want the mirror too...is there an alternate aftermarket mirror that would work w. the airbags? thanks!

PS this forum has been muy helpfull-0, and i'm even more pumped to get mine knowing that tC owners are supah chillen!

Scion does not want dealers to mess with the airbags in the A-pillars, and that's where the wiring is supposed to run for the mirror. You can splice the mirror into sunroof controls if you are willing to do the install yourself - I have an aftermarket compass mirror and that's what I was planning to do myself, but ended up running the wiring to the same location as scion mirror. Sunroof splicing is still a possibility, though.

thanks! that makes sense. how do you like your aftermarket mirror? would you reccomend a particular brand/model?
