Gauging Interest: Buy A Reverse Mirror Tilt Module

Hi,

I'm looking at designing a module that will allow cars without the 'passenger side mirror tilt when in reverse' functionality to be upgrade to have this. I'm trying to gauge interest in this and see how many people may want to purchase one after I develop it. This will influence whether I actually develop it, as I would like to know if there is a market for it. Below are some pros and cons to help you decide.

Pros:
- The module would be self contained
- Your passenger mirror will dip when you put the car in reverse
- You won't scrape your wheels on the gutter because you can actually see what you're reversing against!

Cons:
- It would require DIY installation.
- It would require taking the door trim off
- It would require taking out the gear stick trim to access the reverse signal.

Please let me know if this is something a) your car is not equipped with, b) you have a need for, and c) you would buy.

The estimated cost is $220 for a module.

Thanks for weighing in!

An update:

This may not require removing the door trim. It is possible that this could all be done from behind the glove box at the main wiring loom. Please let me know if this affects your interest.
