Is the mount type the same with the regular mirror as it is on the homelink/autodimming one?

Wow glad I read this...I never knew the arm was adjustable!

Went out and adjusted it up...a million time better now!

wow I had a feeling it was low, didn't realize it was an actual issue I've pondered removing and trying to raise mine as well. 6'5" with long torso as well.. I remove it for Autox but really would like to raise it if anyone has a good idea.

I tilt the 'stalk' all the way up and bend the mirror part all the way down. It still sits too low. Glad I'm not alone thinking this is annoying.

Lightbulb Re: Anyone find the rear view mirror sits too low?

My wifes Forrester had that issue. I simply rotated the mirror 180 degrees on its adjustment ball so the mount was at "the bottom" of the mirror and the mirror itself was almost at the roof line. only annoying thing with this is the bright/dim selector switch was out of easy reach for the most part. This will work if there are no wires going to the mirror assembly. I am waiting for my 2009 to get here so I can't directly answer for the STI just yet.

I've always hated this, but it was just today that I realized there is a gimbal on each end. If you tilt the arm all the way up and then adjust the mirror it is a world of difference.

Tilting the arm does make a difference but the mirror is still in my line of view when making right turns. I am 6'2" with a long torso, and the seat is at it's lowest position. Making sharp turns I still have to duck a little to see through the turn. Very annoying. My 06 WRX never had this issue.

Yea, I've noticed it and it does bother me. Not sure why they slapped it so low (I'm 6' tall, BTW)
