    Best "s4" style mirrors?

    What are people's opinions on the best "most oem" s4 style, chrome (brushed finish) mirrors.

    Any pics of them on dolphin grey, with chrome window trim?

    Wondering what the combination would look like.

    Cheers

    found on a US site, $600!!! - Is this right? The site was talking about them being brushed alu, but I thought they were ABS plastic?

    I've got 'In-Pro' chrome covers fitted to my Avant, ABS plastic but d the job and think I paid about £80. They come in both finishes, I'm thinking of changing to the brushed this year, for a change.

    I personally don't have these mirrors but Im sure there's a thread recently about these mirrors saying how bad quality they are and not to trust "goingfast" as a ebay seller.

    I've found the thread

    I'll vouch for the In-Pro ones as I've had mine fitted for about two years and no issues at all. Quality as good as the OEM casings I removed and all in took around 20 mins to fit.

    DO NOT BUY THESE ONES !!!!! This ebayer is a rip off merchant!!

    I did and unfortunately after 4 months the finish disappeared and after 6 months the plastic started to bubble . I tried several times to get in touch with the ebay seller and all i ever got back was a message from outlook to say that my message was deleted .. you have been warned !!
