    If you've not already changed the mirrors try A4mods.com. I used this site to do mine.

    thanks for your help i managed to get the mirrors on today + they look great but unfortunately in the process I smashed the actual mirror on the passenger side. anyone know the best place to get a replacement glass. just had a quick look on ebay but they only seem to have the whole mirror part. cheers

    Halfords normally keep replacement mirrors but not OEM of course.

    yeah, they will work, all b6 a4's come with the heater wiring connector already there in the casing, and the new mirror glass comes with a plug attached that you just plug into the connector when you fit 'em and when you switch the rear windscreen demister on the heated mirrors switch on
