      It looks like the Golf R-line mirror install would be the same as the Tiguan SEL-P. Check out this video for those who have done it. It was just plug and play, although the guy had a hard time getting the new mirror to twist on.

      Has anyone attempted to install the Prism Rearview Mirror With HomeLink instead? This one doesn't require the wiring and looks like it runs off an internal battery. It is also about half of the price. I have a 2019 Tiguan SE so it looks like I will have to run the wiring and this might make it easier?

      The wiring is no big deal at all, really just plug and play to the headlight switch. But with that being cheaper, could be worth it. I probably would have gone that route for the simplicity if I wasn't also running wiring for a dash cam at the same time. I wonder how long the battery is good for.

      Is this mirror self dimming? Does this mirror also include a compass? To some these features might justify the higher price (and running a wire).

      Have Fun!

      Yes, you just swap the mirror since the SEL Premium already has an auto dimming mirror. Homelink works fine.

      Did you have much problem getting the new one to twist on like the guy in the video?
