Have been working on this for some time and finally got it assembled & installed (still need to calibrate compass) Combined an Audi A4/B7 auto-dimming rear view mirror with hidden compass with a VW MK4/B5/B5.5 rain sensing mount (& black interior paint) to create a black auto-dimming, rain...
can you comment? you are the only one who seems to know..any idea where I can get one of these that doesn't cost $300 or more, which is what I've been finding..
the mount is exactly like in your post.
I found a MK4 rain mount base and a manual mirror and created a manual (lever on the bottom) mirror that you can mount in your car. You should still be able to use your rain sensor and rain sensing feature.
PM me an address and I'll get it shipped out Monday.
I had the same issue. My OEM had all the liquid showing in the mirror and was difficult to see. I swapped an auto-dimming Passat mirror with the same base and works wonderfully. I have my old mirror if needed, but has all the liquid.
it's here! and exactly like my old one, just as you said it would be! - I haven't put it on yet, just tried it up there, it's an exact fit. THANK YOU THANK YOU from Smudge ( my GTI ) and me! You are the BEST!!
