    Has Anyone Got a Drivers Side 8P Heated Mirror 2004 ?

    Hi guys.

    I was putting my S3 mirrors on but cracked the mirror-glass as i was pulling it off...

    Audi want Ł30 + VAT but was wondering if anyone had a spare one that they could sell to me at a cheaper price? Euro do them cheap but have none in stock...

    Its for the Drivers Side and its just heated.

    I also have a spare passenger side mirror (heated) if anyones after one.

    Cars a 2004 model - prefacelift mirrors

    Its this mirror if after:



    Cheers :D

    I done the passnger side one first as i had a spare mirror for that side and that went fine but then as i only had one drivers side, it had to crack! lol

    The tip I found AFTER cracking the mirror is to remove the bottom black plastic part first, and push the mirror from behind - worked nicely for me.

    GSF are the guys formerly known as German & Swedish - http://www.gsfcarparts.com/ - I got a deal as the lad in my local branch used to work for me, but they should still be cheaper than Audi.

    Is that a full mirror from Macess or just a stick-on glass?

    I didn't realise GSF were as much as that - I paid just over half that...
