    Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    Whats the general concensus on aluminium mirrors?? YAY or NAY?

    My thoughts are now split.. i didnt like them but am starting to like them more.

    Were they an option when the car was new?

    Are the actual aluminium cover section interchangeable with other audi's (s4, s6, rs range etc?)

    Thanks

    They were a 500 ish option on the S3 but standard on the S8 (watch ronan!) and brushed ali on RS range! They are interchangeable throughout S3/4/6/8 IIRC.

    Re: Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    I thought the aluminium was an integral part of the mirror, probably wrong didn't have that good a look the other week when changing the glass (some sod stole it).

    I think they are fantastic, makes the car look as special as it is, but not max power, classy!!!

    Yes they were an option, and not a cheap one, think they might have been standard on pre-facelift ones, not sure though.

    Re: Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    No S car should be without them. If the alu ones are too blingy get the brushed ones. I suppose it all depends how much you want to stand out - imo the S3 looks far too much like a boring A3 without the alu mirrors and 18" wheels.

    DO IT! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I like chrome mirrors makes the car stand out that little bit more, although they dont suit a silver car IMO.

    I wasn't too keen on the chrome look myself, until I bought these.

    ROTFLMAO ! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img]

    Personnaly I think they suit yellow and nogaro the best. I thought of putting them on mine (ming blue) but I thought they looked a bit bling!

    They also draw attention to the car so I think it would only be a matter of time before some little scroat decides he wants to kick them off!

    And also I couldn't cope with people thinking that I'm part of the Max Power brigade! There's too many saxos and novas around my way with chrome mirrors now!

    Just my opinion.

    Disagree completely - don't see what the problem with the inpro ones are. However, I do think they would look tacky on anything other than an s / rs variant - most people wouldn't even know they weren't originals!

    There's not much difference between the original chromes to these covers.

    Aren't the InPro covers plastic?

    No we have not, the InPro ones are what we are talking about, I don't mind them and they are not that bad, they look better as I have said on Black S3's and considering they are 70 as aposed to 500 as an option or around 200 for ali covers off Ebay they are a bargain.

    All down to personal taste at the end of the day, I am far from cheap and always buy the best, but when it comes down to saving money on a set of covers for my wing mirrors they don't come very high on my "what to sepnd my hard earned on" list. As for them being availabe for Calibra's, well I would not know as I would sooner boil my arse than own one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Hmmm... yes, I've noticed the fit to be a little out, and obviously they wouldn't give me an orgasm like the aluminium genuine article ones. But like ashs3 says, I saved a few 's allowing for further improvements on other parts of the car [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img], plus these one's are less likely to get nicked!

    Why would anyone buy a classy car like an S3 and then add nasty, cheap, ill-fitting, chrome plastic covers?

    Again personal opinion, they are not that bad to call them nasty, and at 70 for a pair of plastic covers they are not exactly cheap are they? as for ill fitting, mine fit spot on with no gaps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    That's where A/S3's are now im affraid. Right in Max Power territory. With them being more affordable now its opened them up financially to the chav brigade. It won't be long before Peco release a Bigbore 4 for an S3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!

    Re: Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    Now this is getting out of hand, just because I have put chrome mirrors on my S3 it is a chav mobile and I should read max power!

    I don't think so, I have never had and never will own anything made by Burberry, have never been a boy racer and have never chaved up any car I have owned, I simply took a cheaper option for a set of mirror covers that is all.

    I don't see anyone complaining about the yellow and orange A3's on here that have been smoothed out and have no badges or number plates (no offence to you two by the way just using your motors as an example)

    Ess_Three you painted your alloys fu**ing grey for god's sake, does that not put you in the same boy racer category then?

    IMHO that is worse than chrome mirrors!

    Re: Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    I can't see whats wrong with these chrome mirror caps...

    The aluminium mirrors were an option on the car. So saving yourself a few hundred pounds in cash to basically get the same look is worth it IMO!

    I know they are not exactly the same but they are a good compromise for those who don't have big bucks to spend on mirrors!

    So it would seem [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!

    I would like to appologise to anyone i may have caused offence too as this was not my intention. I used to think the polished mirrors on the Audi 'S' cars were classy - which they were. Now that they are available for every make and model of vehicle under the sun they now look tacky and 'Maxy P'. The cheap copies fitted on S3's cam probably be got away with as polished mirrors were an official option afterall. Its when i see peugeots and alike with them on with lexus lights and neons and illuminated washer jets and egg carton bodykits that i think its sad and only hope some of these twonks don't end up in S3's and give it the same treatment.

    I don't even class them as 'bling' shouldn't bling be expensive and everyone knows it is??? They are just bad taste on the wrong vehicle. I wouldn't personally retro fit rep wheels and the cheap plastic mirrors and would probably do without. As Glenn suggests: your only kidding yourselves!

    You car, well your old one anyway, I would love to see how it would compare against a similarly tuned car. I.e map, fmic and exhaust, forgetting all the other things you have tinkered with.


    [/ QUOTE ]


    Well, since I had a generic APR map, a FMIC that added no power and an exhaust that also added no power, I would assume that in a straight line it would be comparable with other chipped S3s.
    This ties in with myself and Grant (ImolaS3) playing about...his AmD against my APR - very little between then in a flat out drag race.
    But the power delivery & set up make for quite different cars...


    [ QUOTE ]

    I mean, you have spent a long time sqeezing every last hp from the 1.8T,


    [/ QUOTE ]

    Actually, I didn't.
    I never even had the rocker cover off...

    Now, my ABF engined GTI...that I am spending every last hour trying to get every last BHP out of it.

    The S3 was only tuned with basic bolt ons...with the exception of a few bespoke pipes / hoses etc.
    Nothing radical there...


    [ QUOTE ]

    but I thought, being such a die hard, perfection seeking enthusiast, you would have just done it properly in the first instance, saved alot of time (at probably not much extra cost) and gone for a turbo upgrade?


    [/ QUOTE ]

    Valid point.

    But, it was never going to happen...I don't like turbo cars.
    I don't like lag, lack of throttle response etc...so there was no way it was going to get a big turbo conversion...besides, I didn't want to lose torque low down, which I would have on most of the aftermarket conversions.

    No, my S3 is a triumph of correct set-up...there's nothing exotic on it / in it, just many hours worth of testing and setting up. That's what makes it special.
    The suspension was perfect for fast road use.

    You can throw money at a project until you are blue in the face...you can have all the power in the world, but if you can't drive it, and it isn't set up, it's a waste of money.

    I could easily have had a big turbo conversion done (I spent well over 10,000 on it, over the cost of buying, in 3 1/2 years)...but it isn't a hobby then, is it?
    I wanted to play...wanted to get to know the 1.8T and the S3. Which I did. It's not all about big BHP...I'd take handling and driving ability anyday...

    I guess the key here is how you define 'enthusiast'. In this instance, I wanted to do it all myself...set it up for me. That's my definition of an enthusiast...and handling / set-up is what I'm enthusiastic about.

    But, at the end of the day...you can't polish a turd...and even with 400BHP...it would still be an understeery, unpredictable Audi....albeit a fast one (in a straight line).

    To each their own of course...and I'm not aiming any of the above comments at anyone in person...I guess I just got to the point where I'd taken the S3 as far as I wanted to go with it. There were various factors involved in me getting rid...but in reality, the big turbo route was never going to happen.
    It was a very capable car...very quick...but totally uninvolving and unexiting....my Mk3 GTI is more fun to drive fast.
    That's why the GTI is still in the driveway...and the S3 has gone...

    Re: Alu mirrors... decisions decision

    Good response as always Glen.

    What I can understand is, if you don't like turbo charged cars, why buy one?

    I see your point also about not spending that much time on the engine, well when compared to your 199bhp Golf GTI (MK3 incase anyone was wondering) which is a acomplishment in its self. I've seen it, its a cracker.

    As for the S3 being a turd, I would say this is a little harsh. Ok when compared to that of your new beast, resting in the stable, but when compared to other cars in its class, I would say overall there isn't much that offers such a complete package, at the time when it was introduce (to knock the R32 answer on the head).

    Yes ok there are always this Jap stuff, that is faster and handles better, but thats if you can bear to sit inside something thats aswell put togeather as a nissan cherry.

    Each to their own as usual, but I would say for the average driver with average (albeit they might not admit it!) skills, I think the S3 is competant for most.

    Look harder.
    The bling chariots you describe, resplendent in thier flip paint, proudly wearing chrome alloys with spinners, multipe massive exhaust pipes, multiple 12" subs, fully smoothed and dumped into the weeds such that any sign of the original meagre handling has long since left the building, have been fully assasinated over the years...

    Personally, I'd have such embarassments crushed for crimes against taste.

    I powder coated them.
    I powder coated tham grey to avoid having to wash them...you can't see the brake dust.
    Also, being powder coated, they need no maintenance...simply hose off every now and then...none of this polished / chromed [censored] here.

    I also got rid of the original brilliant silver finish for a far some subtle anthrasite / dull silver finish...surely this is going against the ethics of 'bling'
    A sort of de-blinging, if you will...

    IMHO that is worse than chrome mirrors!

    Alas, not to most others with even a hint of taste.
    Perhaps we should send the style police round to enlighten you...?

    Why thank you for the 'fcuk_you' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/****_you.gif[/img]
    A nice touch...

    You know, since it's Christmas, I hear some of the shops are doing good deals on 'lifes'.
    You should get one. They're good.

    Don't take things so personally...

    Now pop outside and polish your chromed plastic mirror backs...just don't rub too hard...you may rub the chrome off....or break them, what with plastic becomming brittle in these cold temperatures!

    I am not taking it personally, hence the smiley face with his fingers up, did not realise this was used to say fu*k you either, thought it was a friendly up yours.

    It just winds me up as these mirror covers ain't that bad and as said there are copies of the OEM ones, as for other cars wearing them we all know that those calibra's and nova's etc never had them as an option.

    Did not realise you are old so being wiser you sprayed your wheels darker to hide the dirt and save cleaning them so often, good idea [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    As it is Christmas I went to Sainsbury's and bought my self a life, as you said they had a good deal on them.

    So lets agree to disagree and leave it at that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    By the way I will always carry a tin of chrome paint in case I see your Porker anywhere, if I do I will spray the whole bloody car [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img] (Joke by the way)

    Ha, ha,

    I do enjoy reading these posts Glen.

    Well, as long as the old S3 is top or the Turd Chart, I suppose I can live with that!

    Oh, btw, I fixed my boost leak. A small u shaped hose off the throttle body. Car has been transformed!

    As the car only gets used for play time now, I have to admit, I have been keeping an eye on the 993's in the classifieds, some are very tempting.

    As for the Golf, is only a matter of time before the magical '200bhp' is achieved, that I'm quite confident!

    Oh, on the subject of Golf, have you seen the 507bhp Mk1. Even my Mum thought it was increadable! Now thats saying something!
