    Mirrors Aluminium not chrome!

    Hey i know this is a very covered topic but..... i can't find anywhere that sells the replica aluminium mirrors, can only find the chrome ones, which i don't like!! Looking at part numbers A4/S4 5B ones should also fit.

    Anyone know where i can get replica aluminium 'look' ones? and yes i did try ebay!!

    Some just paintede satin silver would be better than the chrome eBay ones if you really dont want body coloured ones.

    Its all a personal choice, I took off my chrome/alloy/bling mirrors and went for painted ones, one of the best things I ever did to the car personally.

    The genuine ones are bloody expensive so thats probably why they get nicked! A few quid on paint and a bit of time preping and you could create a good painted finish either body colour or a satin/brushed silver

    good plan, i've got a spare set of painted ones so i'll give it a go,

    might do one noggy and the other 'aluminium' silver and see what comes out best!!

    i did have the paint code for the RS4 colour but seem to have lost it

    that said if your going for matt alu colour like the RS4 id be using a bodyshop for definate, so much margin for error on finish and the hardness will be open to stone chips

    i had originally asked a bodyshop about painting them which was going to be about Ł100 for the pair,

    then i remembered seeing these rs4 look ones for the Mk4 Parts4Euro.com - OEM & Aftermarket European Parts & Accessories for VW, Audi, BMW, Mini & Porsche they would do them for Ł45 delivered.... but i now know these will not fit a S3

    Thanks for heads up about rs4 paint code i'll have a google

    I actually don't mind the alu or body coloured, as i've got a spare set i might see what finish i can achieve, the audi rattle can and lacquer sets are Ł13 so quite cheap to try out.... plus i have so much free time, it will give me something to do next week!!
