Ive got a grey one and it stands out like a sore thumb, I know what you mean.

I'm just going to put a tint strip across the top of the windscreen to hide it!

?44 from dealers

easy fit, simply turn and it'll come off

my tip: scrapyard as per MikeTDi

Audi A2's have them, Skoda Fabia's have them, look on eBay as ?44 is a bit of a silly price

or paint the one you've already got?????

Mines black! On a Bora V5 if that makes any difference. I find the black sticks out like a sore thumb worse as everything else up there is the grey/beige colour.

I think you are totally right..... it either:

Black- blends with the windescreen and looks good on the outside, but does not match the light grey roof lining,

or

Grey - stands out in the windscreen, but blends with the roof lining and looks good on the inside.

Not sure how you can win.... anyone with pictures?

I guess you need the black roof lining.

i see what you mean about from either inside or outside.......and what about the little "flap" that sticks down.......

hmm....?37-?44 is quite steep.......more feasible to fit the autodim!

i dont find it a problem with my interior being beige and the mirror being black. i dont see the problem. looks ten times better from the outside though as before your eyes were just drawn to the mirror through the windscreen.

I have a black anti dazzle mirror which I bought as I wanted an anti dazzle. I would actually prefer the grey coloured one to the black one as I still havent got round to fitting it. My interior is dark, however the roof lining and current standard mirror is the grey colour.

I only have the black mirror alone, not any wiring, or the bit which attaches it to the windscreen. I also believe it to be from a passat and I am unsure if it is any different to the golf one.

If someone is interested in a swap whereby I would get the equivalent anti dazzle mirror in grey to match my interior I may be interested. I can take a few pics if anyones interested and try to locate the actual part no on it.......

The black one on mine is also anti dazzle/auto dimming whatever you want to call it.

Therefore, no swapping thanks [:)] Mine goes a cool blue colour when you go underneath a load of trees in the daylight! None of this dazzling my eyes either [:p]

If you get a black one you may need to wire it if it's auto dimming I should think, not quite sure how it works, all I know is it has two sensors in it measuring the light.
