My Alti 2005 3.5 SL came with a auto dimming rearview mirror. The Nissan Brochure says that there are two types available: one with a compass; or the other with a compass and outside temperature guage. Already have a temperature guage in the trip computer ste in the Speedmoter. Called Nissan Customer Service : didn't have a answer.

Anyone have any feedback??? I like having the compass built into the mirror, but I don't want to pay to replace it . Paid enough for the car as it is.

So what you're saying is your dimming mirror doesn't have the compass ? Does it state anywhere on your paperwork (window sticker,etc.) that it had the mirror w/compass ? Where in Westchester are ya & what dealer did you purchase from ?

EDIT: BTW, according to Nissanusa.com, both of those mirrors, the one with compass & compass w/temp are both optional. . unless you opted for either one, you just got the standard auto-dimming one

Thank You Jaystarzz, your right on. The Nissan On Line Brochure states that Two Auto Dimming Mirrors are available: 1 with compass and 1 with Temp and Compass. I got the regular auto dimming mnirror with neither. Maybe Nissan changed that feature after my car was built (June 2004). I have that compass on my other cars. "You don't know what you've got till it's gone....."

I'll try the dealer for a swap, but the Dealer I Leased from Major Nissan in Garden City, Long Island, NY won't go for "spit" - although they made a veryy good deal on the lease......

We'll see. I'll post the results as soon as I can.

^ Shash. . his mirror only has the dimming feature. . no temp, no compass. . he doesn't want to pay extra $$ for the compass, and I agree. . it should be standard. . I don't recall paying extra for the mirror specifically :confused:
Not true, when I was buying at my dlrship, my sales guy told me that he had a silver Alti with the same options I needed except it had a Mirror w/compass or temp (I can't remember now) and the price was $219 extra.

Luckily, I opted for the Crystal Blue and didn't get that mirror. Now mine is an 03 so I don't know if anything changed after that or maybe my Sales guy just didn't know --- he was a smart guy though.

I got an 3.5 SL and still only a auto dimming mirror. The temp gauge is at the odometer, trip thing already.

Funny when I purchased this car, I never ever bother to check or ask for any feature. I only paid attentiont to ..err "Is it a v6? With leather seats?"
