There are a few on eBay and Halfords but not sure if they will fit the Jazz. I m so gutted that this is not available on any of the Jazz. My 2004 Toyota Verso had it. So useful as LED headlights are driving me mad.

On my previous Civic that had no auto dipping mirror I just had mine on permanent dip, 24x7.

I could still see more than enough through the darkened reflection. Also used to dim the following daytime running lights in daytime.

As for fitting one, if no new Jazz has it and therefore no wiring then it could be a difficult job.
Let's be careful out there!

4.3" Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror Monitor LCD Color +Intelligent Dynamic Camera on eBay. Would this fit?

I just don't know why Jazz in the UK don't have the auto dimming mirrors?

I have an interior rear mirror that dims 'on demand' -  raise left hand about 400mm and click the bottom of mirror,  I often leave it in the dip position at night anyway as I have two perfectly good wing mirrors.  On the Civic the rear spoiler tends to keep out following headlights any way except when German Staff cars get too close.......
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Part numbers:
08V09-PG7-C00 Mirror and camera
08V09-PG7-000A Adapter
91561-T8N-T01 Clip (You need 2)

Once I get my Crosstar I will probably order this mirror. I ordered a Honda "dog seat" (08Z41-E6K-020F) via Buyee.jp and the shipping was really fast. I placed my order on the 7th and my package will be arriving on the 15th.

I got the installation manual from a supplier in Japan:

Installing the mirror in a European Jazz is doable. Mind you, it is a big job.

Well well who would have thought of that solution, so clever. Also a fixation with German cars goodness me has one upset you in the past.?.

Which reminds me of the windows on my Austin A35: Handles were fixed on the glass and it was quick / easy to slide the window up/down to the required position. None of that fidding with winding handles or buttons.

Similar to the windows in the rear of my Jazz.
