    S3 Mirror Glass - Problem solved!

    Hi all,

    Just purchased a set of genuine (or so I'm told) aluminium mirrors from e bay. The whole thing, not just the caps, but my original mirror glass does not fit correctly as I hoped it would (see picture below). The seller claims that the original glass from a 2001 S3 should fit - is there a difference between this and my 1999 mirror glass?

    I have been to my local Audi dealer who were less than helpful, and telephoned another Audi dealer, and so far I am no closer to solving the problem as there is no part number attached to the new mirrors!

    Can anyone help me identify the part number for the replacement glass that I need... please??

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok - so I have facelift mirrors, that's one problem solved... If anyone out there has an S3 that came with facelift mirrors, please can I borrow your chassis no, part number (if you know it) or registration to order the replacements from Audi...?

    Cheers.

    Mirror glass was 64.85 all in (inc VAT). I'm told they would be cheaper from vagparts.com but I was too impatient to wait for delivery...

    Good luck!
