  • Top 10 Cars for Infinity Mirror

    Most of the time, purchasers of our new Infinity mirror are buying it to obtain the latest version of HomeLink in their vehicles in an easy to install product. But sometimes, the sheer design elegance and “retro modern” look of the Infinity mirror is what motivates. Winner of the 2012 Automotive News PACE award, and named to hint at the edgeless glass design, the Infinity mirror from Brandmotion is unlike the common rear view mirror encased in black plastic. This authentic OEM rear view mirror has a contemporary frameless design with a precision cut floating glass edge that gives it an elegant jewel-like look. The Infinity mirror is available with HomeLink, auto dimming technology and an optional compass display. It’s also starting to show up in new vehicles such as the 2014 Corvette, 2014 Dodge Viper and Tesla Model S. We thought it would be fun to look at some cars on the market today that the Infinity would also look great in. Here’s our top 10. Which car would you add to the list?
    1. Ford Mustang - The Infinity mirror looks great in any sports car, but in the Mustang it looks amazing. Because the Infinity is 24% smaller than normal mirrors, the driver’s visibility is greatly increased out of the windshield. And, the Mustang’s main competitor, the Camaro, already has it.


     2. Scion FR-S - Both the FR-S’s sister car, the Subaru BR-Z and the FR-S in Japan have the Infinity mirror direct from factory. Automotive purists who want the Japan spec mirror can now have it, and it does look great in this popular small sports car.


     3. Jeep Wrangler - The reduction of size in the Infinity mirror makes the Wrangler’s small windshield a lot easier to see out of. Plus it looks surprisingly retro cool in a Jeep. This is also a great way to add HomeLink to your Wrangler since you can’t currently get it at the factory level.


    4. Toyota Prius - Ininfity provides a high tech compliment a high tech car. The Prius is one of the most commonly requested cars to add HomeLink to. In fact, by adding the Infinity mirror, you can add 3 features that the Prius doesn’t come with: HomeLink, compass and auto dimming mirror.


    5. Ford Fusion - The infinity mirror looks great in the brand new modern interior of the Fusion. Plus, if a Fusion owner wants HomeLink they would have to add the expensive moon roof package from Ford. But with the Infinity mirror you can add HomeLink to your new Fusion for far less.


    6. Cadillac ATS - Since Cadillac will be making this feature standard in the 2014 model, many 2013 model owners are going to want this featutre as well. Also, you cant get HomeLink on the 2.5L S or 2.0L Turbo trim levels and OnStar is no longer in the mirror so you don’t have to worry about losing that feature.


    7. Honda Civic - Another good example of a small car where the frameless Infinity mirror increases windshield visibility by 24% compared to conventional mirrors. Also, you can not get HomeLink in most trim levels.


    8. Hyundai Genesis Coupe - The Infinity mirror really compliments the small interior of the Genisis Coupe. Another example of it being a perfect look for sports cars.


    9. Nissan 370Z - The Infinity mirror looks right at home in this handsome sports car. And what sports car driver doesn’t want to see less mirror and more road?


    10. Volkswagen Golf - The 2014 Golf has a brand new design and the Infinity mirror strikes a dramatic pose against the modern instrument panel. Also it’s a perfect method for adding HomeLink in a Golf since it isn’t available from factory. For the same reasons, it looks just as great in a Jetta.

  • The 10 Most Surprising Vehicles You Won't Find HomeLink® On

    HomeLink is a simple but elegant convenience feature that allows you to wirelessly control your garage door, front gate, and turn on your home’s security system while eliminating the conventional and clumsy remote. Tens of millions have been sold since its debut in 1995 and HomeLink and its little house icon are familiar to millions of Americans. But surprisingly, HomeLink is available on only 1/3rd of new vehicles from the manufacturer. More surprisingly yet is that HomeLink is not offered, either standard or as an option, on many high volume vehicles.
