    My mirror has a compass and two buttons. One of the buttons shuts the LED to the compass off, and the other button does nothing. I've always wondered if the mystery button used to turn on a temp gauge or something, it's just been low priority to look up.

    one is to turn the compass on and off, the other is to turn on/off the auto dimming feature. Atleast in my 2010 thats how it goes.

    To answer your question, No, the outside temp sensor was not available on the 2002 WRX.
    This feature was standard on 2004+ STi's
    Starting in the 2006 model year all Impreza's have this feature, and continues to be standard on 2010 models.

    It's possible to install the STI gauge cluster on non-STI Impreza. If you're interested please do a search for STI Cluster Swap.
    or this link.
