    A question of fitting facelift wing mirrors, firstly, are A3 and S3 fitment the same with regards to bolting up to the door frame? I have one facelift baseplate off an A3 here, and it's slightly bigger than the prefacelift S3 items, also, in the facelift A3 looms, there's 5 pins, on my preface lift S3, there's 7 pins.

    I'm basically asking, do I need facelift S3 bases to fit facelift wing mirrors or will A3 ones work?

    Hi pal a couple of years ago some one tried sealing my wing mirrors off my facelift S3, they we're snapped off at the base left hanging by the electric wires. I replaced the base of the mirror with a facelift A3 mirror and re-fitted the aluminium covers. Not sure about the connectors though as I didn't need to change that.

    Cheers Lee, would be nice to see what the extra two wires are for?

    Interesting, so it should fit, it would be stupid of Audi to reengineer a door frame for some wing mirrors! The plate that bolts onto the door is slightly bigger, maybe it's just a modified design?

    Extra two wires could be power fold mate

    Strange, as there's no motor for the power fold, don't even think its available as an optional extra?

    I might have to get my car out for a test fit instead?

    And the answer is no, they won't fit!
