    Feel your pain dude. Been waiting for some jealous idiot to try and take mine.

    Dont let some pr**k put you off your car and think about selling it though. Just a little down point at the moment in your ownership of your wicked car.

    I would avoid getting your hopes up about ebay...
    Firstly the police dont realy want to act on anything on ebay... only a few of the police can ask ebay for sellers details... then after about 8 days ( normaly atleast 2 days after the listing ends ) they will half heartedly go round, ring you up and say "there is no proof they are yours or that they are stolen"
    Ive been there.... tried that, The s..t that took mine lived about 5 mins away from my house and advertised them from his home adress.
    The ones from the dealers... are plastic these days. real alloy ones are very hard to come by these days.
    Mine cost about 450 each plus vat and didnt come with the mirror glass.
    I hope you can reuse the bases as it will be a fair bit cheaper.

    mine was same... the wires plug in inside the door so you should be ok... they will have ripped the wing mirror wires if you get me???
    the plug should be intact inside the door. i watched the garage fit my new ones.... not as hard as i expected to be fair, The door card comes off... then the base is bolted to the door . its straight forward after you get the card off.

    I was sickend when mine went. What was even worse is that when mine went it was parked on the drive where i lived at the time. Ive since moved so hopefully the extra security i have in place will help.
    Its sad that the theive will stick them on a golf .... stick to the ebay copys unless its an "s" spec audi i say !

    Also worth bearing in mind... even if you found them,,, YOU would face charges if the scum rang the police... after all it would be easier for them to prove you beat them up than it would you prove beyond any dout that they are your mirrors.
    Daft i know. but its the law in this country. The first thin i was told by the police was...we surgest you don not take matters into your own hands as you WILL face charges.

    Hi everyone 1st post sadly on a negative note.... I found this forum by typing "someone stole my S3 mirrors" at least it seems I'm not alone.
    My 4 month old s3 is now looking sad with broken bits of metal and wires hanging out where the mirrors used to be, with dented and scratched doors to add to the misery. Just had it priced at 1400 which I'm going to have to swallow myself as It'll cost me more by claiming on the insurance in the long run

    Aaaaaaaaaggggghhhhh...... And there's nothing stopping them coming back for the new ones! Anyone got any ideas for security? I have to keep it on an open drive which can't easily be secured, CCTV maybe?

    Cheers

    Ron

    On a busy main road near Manchester, will see if there's anything going on eBay but need to get it sorted quick as it's harder (and probably not legal) than you think driving with no wing mirrors as you probably know! Just worried it could happen again now as it appears more common than I thought. Makes your blood boil just thinking about it

    He also only has a rating of 2 so is a new ebayer. But you cant go running around accusing people.

    Does anyone know if the numbers on the black plastic part of the mirrors underneath are individual numbers? If so we could all make a note of the numbers and if you mirrors ever get nicked and appear on ebay we can ask the seller for the numbers (because we want to check they are real, or some spiel) then go and open a can of whoopass.
