    I did it on my old 1.8T. I wired it into the light.

    From memory it uses a 6 pin connector but I sussed the wiring out very easily. Remember for reverse it obviously does not dim.

    Vag parts sell it, but for over 200 is it really worth it?

    I paid about £40 on a well known auction site.

    Pick one up from a breakers or flebay, got mine for 30, mirror fits in seconds, wiring takes a little bit longer (but not too much).

    I priced one from Audi before and it was about £60. Thought that was a no bad price.

    Not bad at all for Audi. Audi's prices on parts are mostly expensive but you get the odd surprise.

    Aye i used to think that too but i was actually quite surprised the times when i have went to buy something from them. Like the genuine mats and clear side repeaters.

    Have you considered a Gentex mirror?

    I got one like this from this ebay seller, very quick delivery, and very helpful seller. He sourced me the button for the windscreen and supplied some glue for it which was exceptionally good.

    Gentex manufacture and supply lots of mirrors to the likes of GM/Subaru/Chrysler etc etc, and they are very good quality. They also make fighter pilot helmets with electro chromatic visors, so they seem to know what they're doing in this department.

    Wiring was easily done into the overhead console.
