Look at this

I've always like how these kinds of mirrors look, anyone tried to replace a mirror before??

Mine's a 2002 so I don't have the integrated turn signal on the side mirrors, I have the fender markers. I thought about swapping them out but then you'd probably want to get rid of the signals in the fenders. I think that would be a bit too much to have 3 turn signals on each side of the car (headlight, fender, and mirror.)

huh... I have a 2003 *scratches head*
But I do see your point about the side signals... that would be a little much ... need sleep

Intergrated turn signals came on the later half of 2004 models & up.

simple enough job to do and been done before, just need to run a cable from the wing/fender indicators to the mirror then romove the ones in the wing and fill the holes.

That explains that..

So would it bolt on or need some extra wires run to it..

I have 6 turn signals lol as long as it looks nice and proffecionals. If I hit somebody they can't say they didn't saw the turn signals.

I'm interested in getting them don't know how to make them work you know where to run the cables too. If anybody sees a review or post about it please post it here.

I'll keep looking over passatworlds website for some instructions but, I doubt I'll do this mod.. better things to put a 100 bucks towards with this car.
