    Hey guys, does anyone know where I could find some Aluminium mirrors Genuine S3 ones? And are they relatively easy to replace with the original? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    so what's the difference between polished and brushed? which one would you say looks better on a black S3? with silver interior? Is one shinier than the other? and how much would it cost if I got it from Audi? more than £180?

    I bought the brushed (matt finish) ones for mine and now wish I bought the chrome (shiney) ones . I think the chrome definatley looks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif better on the Noggy and would say so for black too.

    hey,

    Well i bought sum inpro chrome 1's a few months back. Most likely bang them on.

    Maybe getting my wheels chrome polished soon. Need to touch up the front bumper due to stone chips and it'd be ready for the summer unless i sell it b4 that. Which was my initial plan but due to timewasters i have not had a chance and have also been put off.

    Mirror housing is around 400 pounds at the stealers... if im correct.
