So I got in my car this morning only to find a nice air bubble inside my rear view mirror. I have been searching around for used ones and have seen that people put b6 mirrors into their b5. Is the harness the same, and will the compass work if I do this?

b7 mirror will work. Have one in my car and the compass works as well. Straight plug in just need to get the trim cover for the harness.

Wait it just plugs into our existing harness and the compass just works?

Basically its a self contained unit. All it uses in a harness is power. As far as I can tell that is. I want one now....... Been needing a compass for forever.

Too bad I didnt read that sooner. I bought a b6 one off ebay just before you wrote that. Oh well, I will just have to deal with the black spot for the compass.
