OK, auto headlights/wipers will definitely be on base TDI. I'm sure of this because of this picture from the factory. Interestingly enough, it looks like the rain-light sensor is shown with a NON-auto dimming mirror. This is the first time that VW has put a regular mirror on a rain-light sensor mount. I don't think it's due to the picture. Normally the Auto dimming mirror comes with the rain-light sensor.
The pictured car could be an S. The base TDI is an SE and all the demo TDI came with the auto dimming mirror so I'm guessing all TDI will have the auto dimming mirror. I can tell because the bottom of the mirror has the flip switch. Demo and press cars have the auto dimming mirror equipped. The base is thicker and has an on-off button instead of the flip switch. Oh, and if your Passat badge is crooked, blame Labron. He's shown using an index tool to align the badge.
