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....:confused:

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 :)

The rear view mirror, center of the windsheild. On the back side body of mirror. I'll take some pics and post up.

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) :biglaugh:

Thank you ! Case closed... It can now be tracked to the trash truck.

Yes, you were correct JBanks15 :Beer:
No get it back.
you can start a game with it, send it on a trip, mail it to someone, they carry it around for a while then they mail it off to someone else etc. etc. etc.

Or do you know someone who's paranoid! or into conspiracy theories,
stick it on something of theirs that they will find after a few days.
