My dealership finally located the kit and installed
the mirror yesterday.
The temperature display seems a bit high when it first
starts, but after a few minutes of driving it seems to
correspond to what's being reported on the radio.
Using my hands to cover the sensors, it seems that the
mirror does dim quite a bit. I haven't driven at night
yet.
One unexpected benefit of the mirror is that it is
slightly larger than stock so I can actually see a bit
more of what's behind me--not only the rear window,
but also some of the cabin area.
Here's what it looks like from the front:

Stargazer--
You've probably answered these questions before, so I apologize for
not paying attention the first time around. But what is the name of
the system and how much did the whole thing, with installation, set
you back?
Thanks--

I got the Mazda kit from the dealership with the help
of this:

The part number for the kit is: 0000-8C-A07-B
If you start with this message:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mpv2000/message/2760
you'll get the same information I used. Alex also
installed the mirror on his own and his info is here:

The cost of my mirror was factored into the entire
cost of the vehicle so I'm not exactly sure how much I
paid for it Surprised!
I hope that helps,
Albert
