    OK, so I've got the new mirrors...

    What do you think? Generally positive reactions so far but I'm still in two minds. What do you reckon?

    Hate to say this but to me they look like primed but unpainted wing mirrors which I have a feeling is what one of your 'minds' is telling you. Polished chrome effect for the win!

    Well so far so good I suppose. Everyone who's seen them in the flesh says they look well but mixed reactions on the forums. TBH photos don't really do them justice and I'm not just saying that because as I said, I'm still in two minds myself.

    If you put them up against a silver car (a colleague has a silver A4) they are very similar, certainly not a 'primer look'. Maybe this is the photo thing again? And chrome ones are a bit too bling for me. I got them off eBay from a company call Goingfast. They sell replacement mirrors for all Audis and you can get most in either chrome or matt. For some reason the matt (like mine) are more expensive

    Anyway, I'll continue to read the reactions and keep looking out of the window to see if they've grown on me. They're the same as marriedblonde's and I thought his looked great on the photos and at Inters but..............

    I think the polished ones would suit your car better

    I have the same wing mirrors on mine and sometimes think they look the dogs and other times I'm not so sure.

    The problem with the polished chrome mirrors, in my mind, is that they are for the previous generation of A3.

    All the current S line models (s4, rs4, rs6 etc) use the brushed mirrors. The new S3 wont have chromed mirrors.

    I also think those pictures don;t do the mirrors justice.

    nope - not sure. I think that they look too matt, not the right colour.

    I would go for body colour for me, it's like the Cooper S GP-Red wing mirrors on 23k's worth of car, silly silly!
