    mirror caps dilema.

    I'm quite tempted to get some S4 style chrome mirrors for my T-Sport. At Ł70 delivered though I want to make sure it's a good idea. What do people think?

    As it stands now

    Some of them are poor quality, and don't fit properly.

    If I was going for chrome-look caps, I'd only go OEM - so B5 S4 caps.

    I don't mind buying the proper items if the price is right. Just don't want to waste money by fitting something and then deciding they look tut. lol

    I keep seeing them on others cars and think they look good but then I'm just not sure they'd work on mine.

    The "right price" is subjective.

    If you mean paying Ł60 for OEM S4 items, then no, they're not for you.

    I think they will look ok on darker colour cars, Ł70 i assume they are genuine? and fit pre facelift as glass is a different shape

    Obviously I wouldn't expect to get genuine mirrors for the same price as the copies. If I decide to go for it I don't mind paying a few quid even if it means putting it on hold until funds are about. More concerned about making sure I will like the end result

    And how it looks now...


    I'm not sure on the 'C6 RS6 look'. Think i'll repaint them all matt alu at some point.

    I'm not a particular fan of chrome. Personally if i was repainting our mirrors, i'd do them anthracite, to match the grille and wheels on our motor.

    Brushed is better overall but chrome oem's would be better than standard covers.
