    Wing-mirrors :)

    Right, need help finding either the S3 Crome wing mirrors for a standard a3 or the cheaper version of the carbon fibre wing mirrors

    Would love to have the real thing but due to working in east london - I'm sure within the first hour they'd be gone :-(

    Anybody out there can help a damson in distress :-)

    Best bet is ebay for the chrome mirrors don't know if you can get carbon fibre mirrors but you could always vinal wrap your existing mirrors!

    I would be wary of buying 'used' chrome covers off EBay,most are torn off someone's pride and joy

    Yeah. - they've only for the M3 style on there, don't like that! I've seen quite a few people on here with the carbon fibre type (don't know if there real) but I would like the glossy one for the mirrors. Years ago I was looking at the carbon bonnet etc... Would it be worth doing if I already have a black car?

    Also be sure to check weather yours is facelift or pre when buying as there is a difference!

    I know this may sound like a stupid question - how do I find out if it's a facelift model or a Pre-

    Looking at the pics you have posted its a pre facelift.
    I brought some alloy wing mirror covers, went to fit them & they didn't fit!! Lol
    Lucky enough my local scrap yard had some facelift wing mirrors, so job done after a few £££ spent.
    Hope this helps

    Some companys do a thing called metal spraying and it's actualy quite good
    You can have them painted to look like they chrome/ brushed steel

    Here's just one example I found with a google search
    Spray On Chrome | Home | Spray Chrome System | Chrome Effect

    Also there is a uk company called Garnish. www.garnish-uk.com

    They do some really funky finishes.
    I'm lucky to have one in Exeter plus a few friends have had wheels dipped & the finish is unreal!!
