No, it will not. The tint should actually help. Since the tint is already dark, the little light that does make it to the mirror will still set it off.priuswannabe1 said:Will window tinting installed on the rear window negatively effect the auto dimming mirror?
I see what you mean, The window sticker says "Distributor Installed Options." Plus we didn't buy from a dealer, Wife is an employee.Joel said:The factory in Japan doesn't install tint - most vehicles don't get port installed tint either - the dealer does it mainly.

I'm glad you asked. It might never have occurred to me to tell you about this.

Initially, it was a bit distracting, because now I could see the road "down there," but it's only when a car behind me has low-shining beams, and is at a close distance.windsurfdog said:BIF,
