    They are not delivering cars with Homelink to Australia. No idea why not. I want to install an aftermarket mirror with home link included. Gentex corp make Homelink, they also apparently make the electrochomatic mirrors for Tesla as an OEM. So, my question i:- has anyone opened the cowling up, perhaps looking for a 12v supply, and if so, do you have any photos? What other info do you have such electrical connections etc.
    Any info greatly appreciated as I will be travelling to the States soon and would want to take delivery while there. Please pm me if you have detailed info.

    Bump. Im looking to tap in to the 12v in my rear view mirror as well but not sure how to take the housing off without breaking any thing. Pics or instructions would be great!
