    S4 is aluminium so itll be hard to copy the exact colour. It would be better to spray them or just replace for s4 ones

    As wrapping would be a pita if you haven't much experience in such thing

    With out blowing my own trumpit mate I can wrap good on cars lol am just not wanting to pay the silly s4 money that the mirrors are and wasn't sure weather they wear crome or alloy as the covers u can buy look crome. But the genuine ones look alloy ??

    No trumpet blowing. If u can do it well then do it.

    They are alloy most aftermarket ones are plastic with chrome sprayed on.

    Do they do a aluminium wrap?

    It's not hard to wrap mate. It's all down to the quality of the vinyl really if u get bubble free. U just use a hair dryer to get rid of any creases ect

    Caps will be easier and look better (although I'm not a fan of shiny mirrors either way).

    S4 morrors are solid aluminium, no covers and are not shiney or chrome as people keep selling them as.

    There is no replacment for the real thing and only S and RS cars should have them as they denote the vehicle IMHO otherwise it'll be like putting an S4 badge on a 1.8T. :-)

    I'd love to see the wrapping result when its done?

    Audi S4 quattro in Dolphin Grey Metallic, Silver leather, carbon inlays, RNS-E, 6 speed manual, electrically adjustable & heated seats, xenon headlights with power wash, cruise control, storage pack, 18" OEM RS4 wheels, RS4 ARB, LED lighting upgrade, FASH plus every bill since new.

    Agreed, it's as close a match to Avus silver as you'll get.

    Personally I think silver mirrors on a non S car are a bit old news now. I did mine several years ago, and loved them for a while.... Just spray them with Avus silver or whatever (I bought a spare pair), and then you can try them for yourself. The early S (not sure about RS) cars came with shiny chrome rather than the matt aluminium look of the B6's.
