My only real complaint is the rear view-especially at night. I like to know who is following me especially if it is the law. The best solution appears to be the Evoque's Clear Sight rear view mirror. Does anyone know if that will be available soon or even if it can be retrofitted? If you have seen Top Gear's recent review (from 6 months ago) of the I Pace on Goggle it shows a super clear image out of the rear window . Photo shop, prototype or Euro model??

Perhaps there's an aftermarket solution?

I'm not a fan of the rearview, but then I'm usually passing people anyway. ;)

Bit late but I have the clearsight mirror in my MY21 car and its perhaps the single best option you can buy, the regular view from the rear view is awful but totally transformed with Clearsight, the only issue with it is that it tends to make things seem much closer than they actually are x

However, if you absolutely have to have this feature, there are quite a few options for such "mirrors" on eBay and the likes.

I mean like this one:

Not sure if they're any good, but some of them might be.

The mounting of the camera in the roof fin is what makes is so effective, I guess it is possible to recreate but I think it would be impossible to give the same field of view from a cam inside the car and the fitting would be a pain even if the quality was good (which the price tends to suggest it wouldn't be)

Can this be retrofitted into earlier year models?
The Jaguar dealership told me 'no', but I have just (today) had a camera view added to the rear-view mirror in my 2020 model HSE by a clever auto electrician who took it on as a challenge. The camera is fitted just below the rear spoiler to keep it from being affected by road dirt.

Thats a shame the clearsight mirror uses the entire mirror as a screen area, I thought it was quite good value for the option price and is the thing I would miss most I think on my car had I not chosen it.
The one I linked to above uses the whole area. There are a lot of options, you can choose one you like.
