    W124 Auto dimming mirror with hidden compass, Homelink & alarm LED

    ADMIN EDIT: Click here for more info on various mirror upgrades from 2phast.

    I don't normally do builds using these mirrors, they are extremely expensive to get from wrecking yards and thus, just end up costing to much for the consumer.

    Anyway, I did manage to pick up a few for a decent price (not a good price) as the wrecker didn't realize they had hidden compass's in them. So externally they are very similar to the other offerings, some minor cosmetic differences and upgraded electronics. The amber compass is hidden when the mirror is off or the compass is turned off (yes you can turn the compass on/off on this mirror!). It also has the standard three button Homelink and a small, flat LED on the bottom of the mirror. The LED can be piggy backed to your factory indash LED (so they would both blink in unison) or you can connect it to a aftermarket alarm. The LED itself is not self blinking and requires a pulsed signal from your alarm. Installation is a little more involved, as you have two wires (+/-) for the LED, but other than that, its the same as the other mirrors.

    This is my last one and no promises if I can offer these at this price again.

    $185 shipped to US address's.

    Yes, I am excited about it! Tired of having my garage remote in the ashtray. And I will enjoy the dimming and compass! Thanks Rik!

    Re: W124 Auto dimming mirror with hidden compass, Homelink & alarm LED

    Thread revival alert...
    I currently have 3 different remotes on my sun visor in my 500E. I tried to order the 2M-1 mirror with compass and homelink option from 2PHAST's page but was given the "sold out" message. Is it still possible to get one of these mirrors or something similar? Or is there a similar mirror I can use from a different model that I could use on my existing stalk? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I sure hope the are not sold out. They are really slick!

    Rik? What's the status on your custom mirrors?

    There is nothing that would be considered a easy swap. These mirrors required extensive modification of the OE W124 bracket to accept a newer model Gentex mirror and of course, the entire Gentex auto dimming mirror needs to be disassembled and the wiring modified as well. You could if so inclined, install a W210 mirror, its not a exact fit, but will snap into the OE W124 mounting base. You can see from the pictures it leaves a gap in the front, which you could wedge the mini sunvisor into (needs to be modified a bit to fit). This was the first iteration of the auto dimming mirror retrofit I ever did.

    Due to lack of demand, I stopped making these a while ago. Cost was another factor as well, donor parts keep going up in price which would of forced me to raise the cost of these as well.

    Would you consider doing another batch if enough were ordered to make it worthwhile? I need 4 - W109, W123, W124 and a W126. I will gladly source the parts if you want to send me a PM. Perhaps there are others here that will want to add in.

    Maybe, but only for W124/W201. The other brackets are made from 7000 series aluminum and are extremely difficult to machine. If there is enough interest, I will get back with a price per unit.

    Thanks Rik. It would be awesome if you could get a few more of these made. Surely there must be quite a few new w124/w201 owners out there who would be interested in these mirrors.. I hope.

    If enough people chime in and I can get enough pre-pays, I can do a run. In the meantime, I need to inventory my supply of parts and determine what is usable.

    Seems like a production run of 15-20 units is prudent, at this point. Particularly if prepayments are made.

    I have a never-mounted Mack Daddy mirror for the R107 that 2Phast made me. I should sell it as I sold my 560SL several years back.....

    I don't know, but he did custom-make me a C126 mirror. The R107 mount is specific to those cars.

    To be precise. The W124/W201 share the same mirror bracket, made from cheaper 6000 series aluminum, very easy to work with. The W123/R107 use the same bracket but the mirrors are different, made from very hard 7000 series aluminum, hard to work with and its not uncommon to ruin several before I manage to get the bracket modified right, so it gets too expensive to convert mirrors for those cars. The W126 has its own unique bracket, also made from 7000 series aluminum, very tight bend and very narrow at the neck. Same problem as the W123/R107 when it comes to modification.

    I do believe my stock of W124 brackets is sufficient to handle a run of mirrors but my inventory of auto dimming mirrors is somewhat iffy, most of the mirrors have small imperfections, mostly in the glass. Small scratches which are hard to see unless you look at the glass under certain lighting conditions. Conversions using the less than perfect mirrors would be the most cost effective. Finding perfect donor auto dimming mirrors is iffy as well, as these all come from wrecking yards and I don't have the opportunity to view them before they are purchased, hence why I have so many with small blemishes.

    So far I count 12 or 14 if Jono actually purchases five. With that count, I will do a inventory of what is in stock. The auto dimming mirrors are all Homelink with compass and the only option really is whether or not you want the compass illumination green or amber. These also would only be for the W124/W201.

    Will post back after the inventory count.

    Rik,

    If you need to round up, I'll take a spare mirror for my parts inventory. I'm happy to go with one with a small imperfection if you want to sell it. But I wouldn't want to bump anyone who doesn't already have one -- I have three of them.

    Thanks
    Gerry

    No, the mirror shown in the first post is different, has a hidden amber compass, two way glass and LED alarm indicator. Normally these donor mirrors cost quite a bit more. But if your willing to pay the extra cost, I could build one of these while the others are being built.

    I'd be interested in hearing what you think the price would end up being! The mirror in post #1 looks like it installs with a more OE look. I would certainly be interested if that is the case. Do you have pictures of it installed?

    Actually, I think the units Rik would build may look just like the one in post #1, minus the round wart on the bottom, and with a visible compass window. (??)

    The photos in post #8 were showing a W210 mirror in a W124 (I think).

    Not sure what mirrors your looking at for a comparison, but the mirror in post one of this thread, we will call "The Clown Nose" as it never had a model number. The pictures in this post show model 2M-1, which is the model I have been discussing as it is the most common mirror that I build for the W124.

    Price is subject to change, but right now were looking at $200 plus shipping for a 2M-1. If your interested in the mirror with the integrated alarm LED and hidden compass (The Clown Nose), that one would be $250 IF I can find suitable donor mirrors, many of these sell for quite a lot of money, so its not always cost effective for me to offer that style (hence why it never was officially offered or assigned a part number).

    The included pictures show the 2m-1, dimensions, included wiring kit and I have linked the installation instructions. Also please note comments below about Homelink.

    IMPORTANT: Homelink only operates on the frequencies of 286-399 MHz (FCC restricts several bands between 322 and 335 MHz). If your outside of the USA, make sure your garage door/gate system operates within these frequencies. 420-433 MHz systems are not compatible with these Homelink mirrors. Also, if your garage door uses the Security+ 2.0 radio system (e.g. Liftmaster 8360/8550 etc.) you will need to purchase a Homelink Repeater kit that will convert the 310 MHz Security+ to 315 MHz Security+ 2.0. Then my Homelink mirrors can be used to control your garage door.

    Also, after a inventory check, all of the auto dimming mirrors I have looked to have been knocked off the car and then kicked around in the dirt, so aside from being usable for select replacement parts, I will need to source all new mirrors. So no "scratch and dent" sale unfortunately.

    Yes! Thank you both for the clarification, and 2phast for the additional pictures.

    I'd be in for the 'clown nose' at $250, and if that doesn't end up panning out parts wise, the 2M-1 at $200.

    Greetings, all. I'm new to the board -- am picking up my vehicle tomorrow morning and am completely stoked.

    2phast, I'd like to mimic a777fan and go for the clown nose with the 2M-1 as a back-up. Happy to pay in advance, as well.

    Thanks, all, and I'm looking forward to a great future with a vehicle I've wanted for quite some time.

    Same here. Amber is cool, but if I can only get green no worries as well. And I can live with micro scratches.

    W210 mirrors are only used if I am building a auto dim for a W124 cabriolet, I don't use those for the sedan/coupe

    From the factory, the compass color is green, I remove the film and apply a amber film to better match the interior illumination of the W124. By default, I convert them all from green to amber.

    Thank you for the warm welcome and suggestion, which I'll do soon. Fortunately I was able to put an immediate 12 blissful hours behind the wheel. Unfortunately, I've had to leave her for a bit and did not get pix in the rush to the airport, but I will.

    Re: W124 Auto dimming mirror with hidden compass, Homelink & alarm LED

    Ok, so here is where we are. I have retooled my work area for this project and should be able to start actual builds next week.

    Going to handle this on a first come first serve basis, so the first to prepay will be the first to get a finished mirror and so on.

    There will only be two choices, the so coined "clown nose" auto dimming mirror at $250 plus $15 for USPS priority mail shipping and the model 2m1 for $200 plus $15 for USPS priority mail shipping. Both for the W124/W201 ONLY.

    PayPal address is rik@2phast.com

    I only have a few hours in each day to allocate to this project and will be ordering needed parts based off of pre-payments. At this time, I expect to be able to ship 2-3 a week.

    Back to the clown nose mirror, the LED on this mirror is not a blinking LED, so its function will depend upon what type of signal you feed to it (needs to be a pulsating alarm LED signal). In the past I have hooked these up to the factory 500e alarm LED, so you have the LED in the mirror and in the dash working in unison. The included wiring harness will have the positive/negative wires for the LED indicated and will includes the t-taps and spades for the connection, but you will be responsible for providing two leads of wire to go from the sunroof area, down to the dash. Also, the LED cover is normally red, but sometimes these mirrors arrive with smoke LED covers. The color of the cover does not affect the LED output. Also note that availablity of this type of mirror is spotty at best, so if supply runs out or I can't locate suitable mirrors, I will either need to provide a refund or switch you over to the 2m1 (with a partial refund).

    The auto dimming mirrors are not designed to be connected to constant power, so you will pull switched power from the sunroof wiring harness (as detailed in the instructional manual)

    If you have questions feel free to ask before you commit to a purchase.

    thanks

    You would have to provide me an address so I can figure that out. Also, the Homelink probably won't work in the UK, your gates/garage door systems operate at a different frequency than ours.

    IMPORTANT: Homelink only operates on the frequencies of 286-399 MHz (FCC restricts several bands between 322 and 335 MHz). If your outside of the USA, make sure your garage door/gate system operates within these frequencies. 420-433 MHz systems are not compatible with these Homelink mirrors. Also, if your garage door uses the Security+ 2.0 radio system (e.g. Liftmaster 8360/8550 etc.) you will need to purchase a Homelink Repeater kit that will convert the 310 MHz Security+ to 315 MHz Security+ 2.0, only then will my Homelink mirrors control your garage door.
