    Chrome or brushed alluminium wing mirrors???

    Seen a few black S3's around with chrome mirrors and 1 had brushed alluminium 1's.

    Ide like to get my self a set but only thing ive been slightly put off by is the price for just the casing that will replace my existing black ones??? someone please correct me if ime wrong.

    Had a look on ebay and they are all around the 70 - 80 mark which seems a little pricey to me for 2 bits of plastic??? so if anyone knows of anywhere i can get them cheaper could they please let me know.....or if anyones selling any that would be gd aswell

    thanks

    Dont get the covers! Save your pennies and get the genuine ally ones is my advice.

    For the proper OEM ally ones you're nearer 600 for the pair. Although they're occasionally on ebay for about 200-250.

    But like simch says, get the real ones - the cheapo ones look nasty

    Brushed ones look better, I had some chrome replica ones on mine but changed back to painted silver ones, not my cuppa tea

    If you want a set of the chrome ones cheap to see how they look drop me a PM and we can sort something out, they have some small damage to them but not really noticable when their on the car

    As above

    To many tea leaves with magpie eyes around, I know you should be able to have what you want but so does every thieving scally.
    The genuine matt ones look the best tho.

    Chris, they did sound a bit cheap..... i asked the fella at the parts counter and he said it was because they were only the casings , i would need to fit the insides from my existing mirrors..... is this what costs 600, the whole kit or am i being priced on some cheapies from Audi?

    As said a couple of times already, these mirrors are the most stolen thing from S3s, so fit them at your peril. Glad mine are colour coded.
