Rear view mirror sun flap

The rear view flap is the little mini sun visor, quite handy when the sun is low and your getting blinded from all angles.


Whilst the flap doubles as a mini sun visor, I think the actually purpose is to remove glare on the rear view mirror when the reading lights are on at night.



Good man ridg updated :afro:

the GT TDI 130s came with the arm rest as standard, but the GT TDI 150 had it as an option, i'm pretty sure thats the same for the 1.8T too

Yes it is  :wink:

I've been looking for an arm rest for a while but they never come up with grey leather  :cry:
I often wonder why people never expect sarcastic comments from me - they're the only reason I speak...
