Default OEM AutoDimming Mirror With Compass

Thinking about installing the OEM Auto-Dimming mirror w/ compass. Only issue I have is I was up above the map lights when hardwiring my V1 and couldn't find the mirror harness to tap power into. Is it possible my car doesn't have this harness? I was digging around for a while and just couldn't find it.

Mine had homelink as well but I doubt that matters. My harness was pushed further in towards the center of the head liner. I had to fish it out with a flat head, so it should be in there somewhere.

Thanks Tom! Can anyone else comment on whether my specific MY has the harness (auto dimming and compass only, don't need homelink)?

My 09 OBS had the harness, the auto dimming mirror and compass combo is hands down the best thing I've done to the car.

when i ordered my car and was asked what other accessories did i want to include. All i said was all i need is the auto-dimming/compass mirror and thats it. Love it! Never complain that i'm getting blinded by a truck behind me... or not knowing which direction im driving.

The dimming isn't as big of a deal as I have 20% tint on the rear window, but I really like driving cars with compasses, as apparently my brain is missing one! Also like how the mirror looks, give a more 'premium' feel to the interior.

Alright... Dumb question here. I bought a mirror from another member here, he shipped it to me, but didn't include the wiring harness for it... Is there somewhere I can get one? I don't need anything but the harness. I can get the mount straight from Subaru.
