I would be interested to find that out too. That is the most annoying thing missing from my 2.5SV. I drove a '12 2.5S that had the thing, and I wish they put it in this car. I am also curious to know if it will install without having to add a wiring harness or something.

I want to add this too.
I had an idiot salesman tell me: he could add it to the car. Which made me wonder if he was just trying to land a sale... I say this because he was unable to answer any other questions I had about what the car already had installed in it.

I'm not sure about the 2013, but I installed it on my 2008 2.5S.

But the dealer said they couldn't do it because the wiring harness isn't there on the 2.5S.
I had to remove the headliner and splice the wires in myself (I had help) and got to work.

Just to let you know I lost my sunvisor lights. Very likely my fault because we probably cross wired something.

Hmmm, my 2.5SV has the homelink mirror with auto dimming and compass.

Does it mount to the windshield with a cover over the wires before they go under the headliner?

Why yes, yes I do. And there isn't a box there for mounting. Just the wires having a plastic cover over them. I'll post up a pic when I get home.

Yeah, the '12 was that way (wire cover going to the overhead console). No convenience package for me. I would have liked it, but I am too tall for the sun roof.

Too tall for the sunroof? Nonsense! Just open the sunroof and you have unlimited headroom, plus you get power seat that you can lower to help with the headroom issue. Anyways, here the pic I promised.

LOL. I have the power seat, and that is almost a requirement. I'm 6'4 - 300 lbs. I didn't actually test drive a '13 with a sun roof, but I had a '05 with one and I didn't care for the seating position I had to be in to drive it. I also don't like the thought of my head being that close to the roof in the event of an accident.

Thanks for the pic. It looks like a carry-over from the '12

There are days when I love being only 5'8" and 180lbs, everything on this planet is made for people my size. I never have an issue with will I fit in that car, plane, boat, etc. I just love my sunroof.

It just doesn't answer the question of whether the wiring is there for non auto dimming mirror owners . one of us is going to need to take a peek.
