    They can be bought from here: http://www.veedubmachine.co.uk
    Hi Marco, sadly those mirrors are reps and not OEM... I found them in my research. Not sure if having OEM makes a huge difference, but apparently the key is having the right door controller. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find out any info on the door controllers? Lots of chit chat on Vortex and GolfMk6 but nothing concrete.

    Yeah, I've got to the same point, but it doesn't makes sense, I'm more interested in how are they coded in VCDS, that's the key,

    The mirrors look OK, it's a matter of taking the risk,

    Like everything else, VCDS is in charge of power the motor in the mirror to be able to fold, and finding that option on the CENT-ELEC module is first that finding the part itself,

    Like the dipping function, some say is linked to the Leather pack, some say it's just coding, I found that Polar FIS can do it, and that it's just direct coding to the CANBUS, the mirror is able to dip and move, finding the function or combination of coding is the secret, IMO,

    This. Although I doubt it.

    This thread in Vortex confirms my suspicions

    Do the MkVI mirrors fit the MkV?

    MK6



    They might, but you will mess up with the line of the car, the MK5 is a rounded shape, while the MK6 is sharp and angles, they won't look right,

    Thanks for replies guys. It wasn't so much for looks but for a solution in fitting puddle lights to a MkV. Oh well one less mod to do.

    I've been meaning to get this done for a while, however I've managed to complete the install on the passenger door - switchable safety and laser lights.

    Switch installed in rear of door pocket:




    Safety light:




    Switchable laser light:



    Now to just duplicate on the drivers door....

    Tiguan 155TSI, no mods... yeah right
