My Audi A6 was equipped with an auto-dimming mirror, but no compass. By the time the second OEM mirror failed, I was ready for a different mirror. The Gentex K5 mirror functions as well or better than my original mirror and offers a compass, which I find very helpful when driving in a large urban area. My only suggestion is that the installation instructions offer more guidance on how to adapt existing mirror wiring to connect with the new mirror. I took my old mirror apart and found that two of the four wires were labeled "ignition" and "ground." I then cut the wires on the old wiring connector and spliced these two into the new connector. It worked perfectly. This suggestion might be helpful to other purchasers and it certainly is better than the trial and error method.
