Warning! Even though this is sold as a VW Passat replacement mirror, if you have the VW rain sensor wipers, this mirror will not fit your setup without some serious rejiggering. I used it by gluing another mirror anchor to the windshield next to the rain sensor and splicing the connector to to the VW wiring. It obviously doesn't look OEM, but it doesn't look ugly, either. In fact, for most people it's probably not even noticeable. I am very happy with the functioning quality of the mirror, and of course, the price when compared with the VW cost of about $275, but it's not something you just swap in without spending some expertise, time, and energy.
