Autodimming mirror on my 2018 Elantra SEL

Hello All.

I was able to put an auto-dimming mirror on my 2018 Elantra SEL. Original one was fine, but definitely not better than the auto-dimming one.

Code:
https://www.amazon.com/Gentex-50-GENK2AM-Auto-Dimming-Rear-Mirror/dp/B00PHLM3EI/
It took me a couple of hours, but thats because this is my first major car project, other than changing interior/exterior bulbs to LED.

I fortunately did not have to remove the A-pillar (people are saying don't mess with airbags and the screw might break). That made it slightly easier. Final product looks awesome.

I researched the following two products before buying the one,
Code:
https://www.amazon.com/Brandmotion-9002-9704-Infinity-Dimming-Mirror/dp/B00N4655Z2/
https://www.amazon.com/Gentex-Frameless-Auto-Dimming-Homelink-50-genk80a/dp/B00PXGZESO/
The reason was 1) price, 2) I never use compass, 3) don't need homelink, so a mirror with only the autodimming function was sufficient.

Hopefully this post would be useful to someone researching auto-dimming mirrors for their Elantra.
