Lighted vanity mirrors same mount hardware as old mirrors?

The older cars almost certainly don't have the wiring harness to get power to the visors. The mounting holes are probably the same though.

...uuuuh, not true. many older Model S do have the 12V wiring and connectors under the headliner. Not sure if the new Model S sun visor has the matching connector to the old one. For sure in my 2012 S I have the connectors. I could not find them on my wife's 2015 S. Search TMC for threads on the subject, and look for posts by herbie in NL who runs an aftermarket business.

Herbie is doing a retrofit of your mirror. But I am exploring the idea of buying current production visors from Tesla and installing them--hopefully less $$ than Herbie and made with the proper connector. The problem is matching the headliner-I would assume all current visor production is not Alcantara.

FYI, in case it hasn't been mentioned elsewhere, the new lighted vanity mirrors are a direct bolt in replacement requiring no modification except the 2 wire connector.

Just installed mine this morning.

George, you promised us free retroactive upgrades. Why did I have to spend $300 out of my own pocket when you promised us these for free??
