    hi. genuine ones are quite rare to come across on ebay etc and go for a small fortune. There are some on there made in Germany that I have been told are good quality, easy to fit and look superb. Think they go for around 60 for the pair.

    I gave up, and purchased new.

    The ones on eBay tend to be chrome, not brushed aluminium.

    I've got them on mine. They look alright, but not a patch on the brushed ones.

    The RS4 items aren't covers. They're complete mirrors, ready to bolt in place. Don't come with glass though, I thought I'd use the glass from my original A4 ones.

    Completely different shape, glass was wrong angle, so bought the RS4 glass.

    Parts guy at Ipswich Audi says apparently, the facelift glass IS the same as RS4, but never verified.

    HE DA MAN!
    I read a write up of sienas on another forum all about his history with Audis going all the way back to the early 70s when his mum had one. He has been working on Audis since the late 80s and going by the work he has done over the years I am pretty sure he knows what hes talking about.
    Keep up the good work Siena!
