Default Euro Split Mirrors for new (2004.5) TDI Passat

Hello - I mistakenly ordered split mirrors that I understood would fit a "2004 Passat". Guess what - they don't fit (blinker in the side mirror)!

OK Steve, so what's your point? Well, does anyone know a source or at least part numbers for split mirrors that will fit on the new Passat?

I can tell you that the part numbers are not:
> 3B1 857 521
> 3B2 857 522

Thanks!

Where do you get these mirrors?? Are they hard to replace?? I would love to get them as this car has the worse blind spots of any car I have ever had. I want to replace them before I run over someone! :-)
Thanks!
John

Wanted to bump this up in hopes someone would chime in where they bought the split mirrors for the Passat with the blinker mirrors. Also are they easy to put in yourself?
Thanks so much!!!
John

[Dang it--why is it that everytime I want do do a search it's not available]

Not to hijack this thread, but have these split mirrors ever been available for the B4 Passat?
