Mic Vent of The Dome Light-is there a mic by vw that goes in there?

I have noticed in the W8 Dome light mod that I am about to do, that there are vent holes for a mic in the W8 Dome light Panel. Does vw make a mic that is supposed to clip in there? Am i supposed to place any after market mic in that spot, or does european vw make a Mic that fits exactly in that spot, and does any one know the part# and how I can order it?--thanks for any info.

The mic has a different gain than what you would use for a normal Nokia car kit. (can't remember where I heard that os its unsubstantiated)

I took my Nokia Car Kit mic out of its housing and installed it in the W8 panel. No problems.

I did the same theing when I put my car kit in. The Mic was picking up lots of wind noise and every time I used it who ever I was calling complained. Maybe for cars with a sunroof there is different insulation up there. I have since put the mic back in the housing and have velcroed to the headliner behind the visor. I ran the wire out through the visor light, works much better now.

I don't seem to have any wind noise. I haven't tried with the top open though.
