So I was installing a few things that required me to remove my headliner, and noticed a wire tucked up under and glued to the headliner where the little bump is in the front middle section. The plug wasnt attached to anything and it looks about the length needed to reach the rear view mirror. Was there an electronic rear view option for the car or did the holdens have them? just curious what this wiring plug is for.

There were no modified rear views on the GTO. I am not sure about the Holden though. Trace the wire to where it comes from....if it is a plug and play for an electric mirror I'd go with one. Let us know what its connected to.

Haha. Probelm is i already got my headliner back in and am feeling a bit too lazy to go back in there and track it down :D. If it is for a power mirror i think ill be trying to locate and purchase one.

What color was the wire? How many wires was it? I found a wire in the schematic that is labled BK/BU black with blue stripe and it is labled Electro Chromatic Mirror(Not Used).

not sure the color but i bet that was it. found this about the HSV GTO:

"Standard equipment includes a trip computer, a six-disc in-dash CD player, leather upholstery, front/side airbags, automatic air-conditioning, cruise-control, power everything, rear parking sensors, HSV floor mats, Data Dot security and an electrochromatic rearview mirror."

now to see if i can find one to buy somewhere

Could it be for a factory sunroof option that the Holdens had?

I installed the Gentex 50-GENK30 Comp/Temp w/map lights rearview mirror in my GTO and love it. You can also get one's with garage door openers...

looks stock

I planning on getting the one with the homelink option, temp, and direction. Was it hard to install or were you able to wire it into the wire they are talking about in this thread? Yours looks good.

It was a long time ago but I don't think I did tap into that wire. I believe I just tapped in to the fuse box and one of the door wires for the lights coming on when I open the door.

Yeah I agree its expensive but for me the Homelink alone is worth it. I had that option in my Dodge and I miss it.. now I gotta carry around a garage door opener everywhere I go and knowing me I'll lose it. Besides that mirror looks nice... guess Im superficial. ;)

So doesnt seem like it was too big of a deal then, I will be getting one of those... do they give you a new bracket to hold the mirror, I'm guessin its heavier.... also do you have to put a sensor under the hood for the temp to work?

The company sells a bracket and wire hiding stuff for the mirror. It is on the website.
