Not sure it is important to you, but remember you lose the puddle lights on the new mirrors. (activated by yellow button on remote key)

It's an electrical communications system that operates the vehicle. You'd have to tap into that in order to get those 07 mirrors to work -- and apparently for some, that would make their life more complete. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: I am really interested in the new R mirrors (rogersampson)

The 2007s that I saw in Sweden earlier this month all had the puddle lights. Has anyone actually seen a 2007 US bound car to verify that they are missing?

However, if you have read any of the other thousands of posts on this board, you will realize that if you ask a question, someone is usually going to give their opinion, solicited or not. <p>Almost every thread on this board tends to wander off topic so some extent or another. Whether it starts out as a specific mirror question and goes into more of a general converstation about mirrors, etc, that is to be expected. Even thread hijacking sometimes happens. I recently posted a thread about Graco baby seats, and we ended up talking about Britax seats. I didn't yell and say "keep your Britax seat information out of my thread!". So I didn't hijack your thread, I was responding to a poster who asked whether or not the puddle lights were indeed blacked out on '07 mirrors, which I have happened to see in person that they are. While there, I gave my opinion, and I gave it because it seems like most people have not seen the '07 mirrors in person, and like most things, they look different in person and viewed in the context of the whole car. In My Opinion, they do not look cohesive when viewed on the car.<p>BTW, my post was not negative. I simply gave my opinion. Negativity is something like "Jeez, you must be a real putz for wanting those, man, they are UGLY." And I was not the one who made the quip about your life being more complete with them. <p>Hope you are having a better day today. <p>

Re: (Copeland)

Can we setup a pay-per-view Forum Fight between Copeland and R Crazy? Where's Don King when you need him? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
