    Exterior auto dimming mirrors

    On my 58 plate A4 2.0 tdi S line Avant I've noticed that the exterior door mirrors do not auto dim when being dazzled at night by lights. The interior auto dim rear view mirror works fine, or are the exterior auto dim mirrors an option. how do I check to see if I have exterior auto dim mirrors ??

    You could remove the glass to see if the wires are fitted.
    2 wires for heating and 2 wires for dimming. The replacement dimming glass is expensive.

    Look at your option codes. If you have '6XK' then they were specced as an option from new.

    Your options will be on a sticker in the cover of your owners handbook and in the boot of your car (in the wheel well I think). You can translate your option codes here

    Mine translated to the following;




    My options sticker looks like this;


    Worth noting that this isn't all of our options as it misses off Bluetooth and DAB.

    Given its a B8, show me a pic of the glass to be 100% sure, but for your year, if the glass doesnt have a dotted line all way round indented about 6-8mm from the edge, then its non dimming & sides are not usually fitted if a pack wasnt opted for when speccing or not an actual addition, as usually the rear view is on its own.

    They can be fitted mate, PM me if interested.

    Also worth noting they only came with folding mirrors so if you don't have those then you won't have dimming glass...
