does the passenger side mirror on your beetle say, "objects in mirror are closer than they appear"?

i swore mine did not originally. i brought it in to stealership to get the heated mirrors fixed & now my passenger side mirror says that. it seems they switched the glass & didn't tell me...

It's just a 1998-2000 thing... only real remedy would be to acquire a UK-spec "drivers" mirror (right side), to even out the mirror housings.

I dont beleive my mirrors say that either, but they did switch hte glass because the heater element is built into the glass, so it had to be changed.

This new knowledge makes me not want to change my glass to get my heated morrors working again.

The pass. mirror on my '00 NB (early build) does have the "Objects in Mirror" scripting.
