    mirrors, chrome or matt finish? Any photo's

    Hi peeps, i have been toying with the idea of replacing my standard mirror covers with the silver S4 ones, BUT i can't make my mind up whether to get chrome or matt...

    I have seen a blue A4 like mine (jonmusicman) with the chrome mirrors on but i am after some other images, from all angles, of the chrome and the matt finish styles fitted.
    Oh, and i have the chrome window trims which would match the chrome style but i think the matt style mirrors are a little less in ya face.

    hi jonmusicman, it was your images that first started me thinking about the retrofit but i think the matt finish are a little less full on

    It depends on opinion, I prefer the matt finish as theyre more a smoother finish then the chrome, chrome is a bit tacky (my opinion) and llo cheaper. My brother just bought some original mirror casings from dealers in matt finish for his cab as they match the front pillars which are also in that smooth matt finish and they look awesome. Coming back to chrome ones, where I live in Bradford we have loads of black Avensis (audi wannabees) with chrome mirror casings and they have put me off for life - most of them are taxis. Like I said its a matter of opinion. Good luck in deciding..

    i have found a seller on eBay that sells the in-Pro mirros so i will send him a message to find out if he will do a group buy, but put your names down if you are interested to see if we can get the numbers, no point asking him unless we have enough people interested

    Chrome ones look tacky - matt looks more like the OEM ones.

    I'd get yourself a closer look before buying matt mirrors for a silver A4 mate. I got some for my car but sold them on without fitting them. The colour is so close to the paint no-one would have noticed.

    i emailed the seller last night and asked him if he would offer a discount on a group buy and he has come back with a price of £88 all in (inc P&P) for 5 sets, so if we can get more people interested (10 buyers) i reckon we could get him to the £70 region

    How much you looking for?

    1210tech

    I'd definitely be interested in a set of these mirrors. I bought a set of chrome clip on covers, and it was a big mistake they look so cheap and tacky. Thankfully I only paid 30 for them, so it's not a big deal.

    I know a lot of people are interested in these mirrors so if we get more people then we'll be able to get a cheaper price I'm sure. Hope it goes well
