Dont suppose anyone on here as done gloss black roof and mirrors on an iridium grey MK7 or 7.5 have they?  :whistle:

just the Mirrors. The plan was the Roof also beacause i have the Panorama sunroof.

But i have not done it bacause you have to take down the interior roof if you gone do this propaply... :smiley:

Pretty pleased with mine. Get oem ones here: http://www.vwmotorparts.com/accessories-c-37_472_473/genuine-vw-golf-mk7-facelift-mirror-caps-high-gloss-black-p-1474.html

Only picture I have right now..



Just to check - these fit a Mk7 not just the 7.5? The link says Mk7 facelift, but your car is 2015 so I assume they're the same. Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, just wanted to check before I order - thanks!

Thank you very much. Tornado red here too - looks so much better with the black mirrors in my opinion  :cool:

Definitely. I broke one of mine so now I have a pair of carbon fibre ones I bought off the 'bay. I prefer these but the gloss black ones were very good and easier to fit.

Do you have any pics of the carbon ones? I like the sound of those too...

As I said, they are a bit trickier to fit as the clips are less flexible and can be broken if you are not careful. Also the edge adjacent to the door tends to bend inwards, you need to use something thin (a small electrical screwdriver works well) to pull the edge out as it fits against the vertical edge of the frame. Once fitted they look great.
