Dash board reflection

Does the MK4 have the same problem as earlier models with the dashboard reflecting onto the wind screen?

I have no problems with the Mk4 screen/reflections.
Having said that, Iíve had no problems with the previous Mk3 & Mk2 cars, although Iíve never polished the dashboard.

Maybe itís because I have the seat set to Max height and Iím not a particularly short guy 5ft 10Ē. I just like to sit high up, having come from a 4x4 background.

Other than using black felt sheets on the dashboard I have never found anything else that worked.
Its strange that its only some drivers which notice it .
I like the MK4 but if I get the same reflections I wont buy one

Must say I havenít really payed attention to this, but also havenít noticed it so far, so I guess itís no problem.
Thinking about it, the dash is one big flat surface with only two thin air vents under the wind screen and a small temperature sensor in the middle, so thereís not much to cause annoying reflections.

In my experience the Mk 2 was the worst for this, the Mk 3 was better and the Mk 4 is better still. However, my eyes are much happier if I remember to put on my polaroids if driving on a sunny day although it's not dangerous if I forget to do so.

I've not been driving mine in sunny weather long enough to be absolutely sure. I haven't noticed much dazzle from the dash. The angles are different from the Mk2, which does affect how much reflection there is. I also routinely wear polarized sunglasses in sunny weather which used to help a lot with the Mk2.

Maybe try looking through the windscreen instead of looking at the windscreen...  8)
Stay on the right side of the road (I mean here, mainland Europe, the >>> RIGHT side).

You can get a can or pack of Simoniz Matt dash spray/wipes from Amazon or Halfords.

I had the problem on a earlier car, caused by a Ďvaletí before delivery where they must have used some cheap cleaner/furniture polish.

All the plastics were shiny until Iíd cleaned them properly and removed their treatment.

As per another post. I accidentally polished mine during cleaning but some ArmorAll matt wipes fixed it.
Let's be careful out there !

You are still seeing the very annoying reflection,  it is like a head up display......
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

That means, if I follow your reasoning, that a head up display is also "very annoying" and according to others here dangerous?
