    Hi all, I'd like to fit the electric folding mirrors to my '04 TDi Sport. Would I only need the mirrors, switch and VCDS, or is it impossible? We have a very narrow drive alongside the house and SWMBO is nervous about it and always has to stop and pull them in!
    I can't convince her to just keep the steering wheel straight!
    Thanks in advance. Pete.

    you would more than likely need a new door module too and someone who knows what wire goes where....not as simple as plug n play im afraid

    where are you based?

    na i was going to do it and i have the module!! the motors alone are £350 from Audi, plus the switch..... you'll need the module (pretty sure of that) - easily a £500 job
