I dont know about the us models, but in europe the Golf's come with non-symmetric mirrors, so I installed a japanese OEM mirror for the drivers side. it came with a blue-tinted mirror, I ordered one for the other side too

What's that emblem on your hood. Car looks good by the way. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

thanks!
heh, just something I was joking around with, its like a superman logo with an A.. the chrome part is reflective so it looks like a real emblem, I get some confused stares every now and then

Man, I LOVE that color. I was in France a couple of weeks ago, and as good as the color looks in the pics, it looks 10 times better in person. I want that color in the US

Man I love the Vortex!!! I was just talking to my wife about the smaller mirrors. We were checking out some "Euro" dubs and saw a couple with the smaller set. I want a set. Thanks for the info!
