New GTI VR6 Question/Help

473 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  sailnavy
Anyone know how to tell if a GTI has the rain sensing wipers and the auto dimming rear view mirror. I saw one that had it listed on the sticker, but no climatronic. It was a 2002, with leather and lux, no tech package. The wierd part was that it had the old single DIN stereo.
Thoughts? Misprint, or truth? I have no idea how to know about the wipers, I didn't take a close look at the mirror.

Turn them on one click with the stalk (sams as the intermittent position on the regular cars). When the windshield gets wet, they wipe, when it's dry, they don't. There is a sensitivity adjustment for them so you can set how much water there is before they wipe. That adjuster is what sets the intermitent speed for those with regular wipers. The wipers still have a regular low and high setting as well if you don't want to mess with the "rain sensing" setting.
