    Chrome Mirror covers

    Hi I've bought the chrome mirror covers off ebay. They look like good quilty ones that I replace my standard one's with. And give it that more modern Audi look. Has anyone done this by chance? And do the mirrors just pop off i.e are they just glued in? Any help will be much appreciated Ta.

    There these one's

    Hi also try http://www.a4mods.com/index.php?page...s/mirrors.html

    They are dead easy to fit. I did mine on my A4 in 30 minutes.

    Make sure the + screwdriver is the right size! The 2 screws under the mirror could round off.

    I had some mirrors for my B6 from Going fast, they were really good quality. I decided not to install them and sold them on though as the matt mirrors on a silver car looked ver close to the original ones and I doubt anyone would have noticed.

    Hi Chrome mirror guys. I found this link very useful

    http://www.a4mods.com/index.php?page...s/mirrors.html

    All you need is...

    1x +drive screwdriver
    1x small but long ish - type screwdriver to help unclip the backing cover.

    The In-Pro instructions said to fit them above 18 degrees. it was about 8 when I did mine and they were ok

    They really suit the red cars,im still not sure about getting them for a silver car though as john said you wont notice much difference. What are the roof bars like to fit if the car doesnt come with them as a few i have looked at didnt have them ??

    Try here:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d..._promot_widget

    Cost a bit more than the chrome 1's. This guy was mentioned by Sinny71 further up the post so maybe he can provide some more info on quality etc. They look pretty good though, I was gonna go for a chrome set but after seeing them I could be tempted...
