    Its very rare you need it, but when I drive to work some mornings on one stretch of road I'm driving straight into the sun, it sits midway between the two visors and that little flap is invaluable.

    it should be used when you have the interior light on so you don't dazzle other road users

    I had a feeling it was for something along these lines as I'm sure it got raised in the Mk4 Golf forum too. I think it was mentioned that it stops glare in your rear view mirror when the interior light is on.

    Current Car:

    A3 S-Line TDI 140bhp Sportback in Misano Red Pearl with Audi Open Sky System, Chrome Roof Rails, Full Leather, Front Armrest with Audi Phone Prep, MFSW, Cruise Control, Auto Wipers, Auto Lights, Auto Dim Mirror, Rear Parking Sensors, Bose Stereo, Privacy Glass, Ambient & Footwell Lighting and Puddle Lights.

    Pic soon

    Gone but not forgotten:

    Audi A4 TDI Sport Avant in Denim Blue
    VW Golf Mk4 GTTDI
    Vauxhall Calibra 2.0 16V 150bhp Red Top
    Vauxhall NovaVAN 1.5TD

    I think it just stops the light from the interior light (if you have the full set on) from shining on the face of the rear view mirror. It used to work in the Golf but cant say Ive even tried it in the Audi

    Lol - I can't see many interior lights being bright enough to require a flap to prevent dazzling!

    My flap is behind the mirror so wouldn't stop light reflecting on the face
