    Ebay, your dealer, vagparts.com

    Yours is an 8P, The 8L was the previous model A3 that ceased production in mid 2003.

    unless you are fussy and really want genuine audi parts and expensive audi prices....there is a german company that make replicas which are 100%, the only difference is that they do not have the audi stamp!

    pm MarriedBlonde - he had a set on his A3 and were nearly a third of the price of audis

    sounds like they're stolen to me.

    i suspect that if he is emailed somebody on the forum might lose a set of mirrors over the weekend!

    I personally dont think they're stolen, he obviously has a contact with the manufacturers for audi, they could even be rejected by audi which even a misprint inside the mirrors would be the case but to us they would look perfect, for selling this many he would of been pulled up on it by now, he's not exactly sold just a few here & there.

    He's got hundreds of them!!!!

    Personally I would go with the brushed ones, the chromed ones are for the previous gen of the A3.
