tape on mirror

I recently purchased an 06 SLK 350. On the back side of the rear view mirror there is a strip of tape which has a printed circuit on the opposite side. I have found no info on what it is or is for. Does anyone know?

Thanks

LOL. That could be ! It was not completely secured so I eaisly pulled it off and that's when I noticed the circuit on the back side. It looks very legit. even has some small printed numbers in one corner. I was hoping that I wasn't alone....

Mirror is heated and mirror (driver's side) is auto dimming.

Both functions require electric power.

RG, based on what lkchris said, is this the inside or outside(driver side) mirror, and is it on the outside of the mirror body or the back of the mirror "glass"(inside the body)?

And only John, Theregans, only John

Looks like something used for inventory and tracking. It could be something the MIB use also to track extra-terrestrials (notice the word: ALIEN on the strip)
