    Citroën-Porsche = same same ( on some parts )

     I just saw today, while doing some windows cleaning, that the rear self dimming mirrors on our Citroën C8 is the EXACT same one as the one on my 997.2 S Smiley !! 

    There must not be many companies making them or what ?  Do the other brands also all have the same one ?

    I wonder how much P charged me for  this option ?  It was included in the Citroën, a cheap and not very well built car !!!!!!

    Re: Citroën-Porsche = same same ( on some parts )

    Go on the factory tour and have a deep look on some parts under the hood. The wires have the Audi logo on the plugs, the tranny the Mercedes Benz star, most electronic control unit wear the Bosch logo, the radio the Harman, the amp the Bose, the Airco valeo, etc etc. That's the way they build cars nowadays. Let's face it many parts are the same but does it hurt the 911 having a mirror you can find in a Citroen or Peugeot? What hurt might be your feelings paying a rip off overprice premium for a crappy mirror any other car has as standard? I understand you to good, Im hurt with these things, too. But try to see the overall factor - a 911 is 120 k€ total package and not 90k€ what they tell you as a base price. That will make things easier.

     Exactly. I know car makers can't have ll there parts built specially for them. 

    It's the premium, Porsche is asking for that option that is not right.

    To add onto this.....seeing both exact same mirrors next to each other did make my 911 look slightly less unique Smiley

    ...and a self dimming mirror or lets say a cruise control should be standard in a luxury sport car! To be honest - I rather would have a higher base price but seeing all those options included as it wouldn't be reflected as negative as it does!
