    After paying close to $600 for a new part, I found a company in Texas that will repair your old auto-dimming rear-view mirror for $89. I Plan to repair the old one and put it on eBay. It's a nifty little feature, but not worth $600! But I live in Germany (military) and had to have it to pass...

    Does anyone know the correct part number for the auto-dimming rear view mirror for a '01 Passat? I have went through ETKA and other sources, found numbers, but 1stVW and World Impex list it as an invalid number. Also if anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know.

    I was driving home last night in my B5 and i was being followed by what i believed to be a GMC canyon; a high riding truck which is higher than most cars you will see on the road. I have always been suspicious of the auto-dimming rear view mirror, but i understood its principle. I noticed that...
