    after market rear view camera

    Did anyone install one of these rear view cameras from AliExpress that fits into the spot of the number plate light?

    Here is an example

    I have the unit with the screen, navigation, CD, radio etc. there is an input for that right? And I already know how to activate that

    thanks for your answers

    I've never bought anything from aliexpress. If I'm not mistaken the license plate light on our cars looks different from the pictures on the link.
    My mom says I'm cool

    Aliexpress has been good and bad for me. Clone EOtech scopes have survived 30k rounds. A Win10/Android tablet (amazing specs) broke just after the warranty expired.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    there are 2 choices in your link

    However, they are different from the bigger pictures and seller says "ask before buying"

    I suggest that you look at the ff. other options:

    If the camera is mounted inside the rear window it will be better protected from weather, vandals and thieves. Plus, it will eliminate drilling holes in your vehicle to pass wiring through. There are rear-facing cameras designed for this purpose.
