I know i'm probably dreaming, but last week i bought myself a Candy White 1600 S five door for a goodprice off of e-bay.

On reading the chassis number i have discovered the car is built in Mosel. In all the time i have been around Golf 4's, i don't think i have ever seen another one built at Mosel. In addition to this my interior mirror back is in black, which i also find unusual because most of the ones i have seen have matched the headlining colour of Flannel grey.

Any advice or knowledge appreciated.

My second MKIV(a 99/T 1.8T) was built at the Mosel factory; my parents' 99/T 110TDI was also built there. White MKIVs are quite rare; especially GTIs.

I think only the 1.6 had a black rear view mirror cos i was after one and my mates old company car had one and that was a 1.6 obviously not definitive as an answer but i have heard it somewhere

quite a few of the base models had a black mirror, but it was non auto dimming, and non rain sensitive, whearas im pretty certain the anni's mirror was.

Had to do digging when I changed to my black headlining

"Security sources say it is thought one of the bombers could have been in the white VW Golf, seized in East Finchley, north London, at some point."

My 99/T 1.8T had a black mirror. Regards the Anniversaries; I've looked at 3 in the last couple of days and none had a rain sensor/self-dim mirror but strangely the brochure showed it as standard fitment.

And even stranger my Bora 1.6SE had a back mirror with rain sensors and
auto dip, as Bora SEs had this stock. So the part existed!

Bloody VW spec madness again
