GTR2 Black polygons on cars at night?

Hello everyone! some days ago I installed GTR 2 with some mods, but last night I noticed a weird effect that appears on all cars during night with the lights on BUT only using the cockpit view.

You can see in the screenshot something black in the corvette. Idk why this happens.

I have downloaded the Anniversary patch and changed the "defviews" file but I get more black polygons on tracks. The headlights are on "Medium".

This bug is here since 2006 and I did not find a fix yet.
It is not worse in hq patch, flickering is exactly the same as original game but hq headlights are more powerful so you see better by night than with stock headlights and so you see better these gliches too :D
Steam/gtr2 digital binaries are more affected by flickering than nocd but there are still some.

What was the issue ? With your fix you have no more black polygons or you mean same as nocd no more no less ?
It is no worse than nocd, if fix is enabled. Simply trying to clarify that yes, by default Steam .exe flickers more, but there's a fix for that particular problem.

Why not going deeper to totally remove this bug ?
On my side I have made many tests in the past and I can assure that this bug is related to cockpit mirrors : if I delete the 3 cockpit mirrors then no more black polygons by night...but driving without mirrors is not really realistic for what supposed to be a sim.

Because it is a different problem. Good to know it is related to the mirrors. One day I might look into it ;)

Can't believe there's not a real fix for this to this day haha. Well I'll do my best not see that. I'll also try going back to the stock lights and changing the mirrors. Thank you very much for replying!

I have just made a fix for hq cars here :

HQ Anniversary Patch part1+part2+apply hotfix2 (overwrite ALL) then run GTR2_SETUP.CMD to set options as you like.
I don't see these black polygons anymore on my pc.
