If anyone knows of a supplier then please tell me..........I spoke to my local audi dealer and they quoted me over 800 quid!!! i just walked out laughing, well what do you expect from a main dealer. many thanks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Unfortunatley the Aluminium mirrors are 'one piece' therefore the price you were quoted from Audi is actually correct. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    They are not covers and not available seperatly, you have to buy the whole units.

    How do i know.... Well one of my freinds runs VAG Parts.com. Give Paul a call, im sure he will be able to sort something out for you. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I would drop Rockstar a PM on this one, as he's twice bought Ali mirrors from ebay and knows what you need for the job......why did he buy two pairs?? Well the first one's got stolen!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    A couple of weeks ago there were about 5 pairs of ali mirrors (caps) for sale on EBAY.

    They sold for between 150-250. I think all of them were being sold from Germany.

    The problem is understanding the german language in order to find out if they are pre or post facelift.

    have found that if you email alot of the sellers they speal fluent english...unlike my german which is sod all!

    have used a few translation sites aswell,not the best i admit but you usually get the general idea!

    for the money you save it worth the trouble!
