    I want to turn my A3 Black edition into a S3 aesthetically over the next couple of months,i was thinking of doing the mirrors first but am not up for paying RRP for them .I found these on Ebay.de and they are the correct shape,the only thing is in the picture it shows a ABS badge imprinted on the mirror .I thought the genuine mirrors are supposed to be aluminium or am i mistaken ?

    Audi S3 mirror caps really original mirror caps aluminum alloy A3 8P Sportback | eBay

    Cheers

    Hmmm i can't find them cheaper anywhere ,my best bet is to wait for some to pop up on ebay.It would be easier if audi didnt change the mirror cap shape for 10/11 cars :3sadwalk:

    Am probably going get some abuse for saying this , and it is not aimed at any one just an observation . Some one made a similar comment early but can t remember who. This whole attitude of not wanting to pay RRP I'll just wait for some thing to crop up on eBay is the reason people's cars / car parts keep getting stolen. I personally think eBay and simalar advertising site need to do some thing about it.

    twas Me.
    The set that were ripped off the poor feckers car in the other thread will probably end up on a `converted car` at some point unfortunately.

    Phil makes a good point, breakers SHOULD filter out some of the moody parts in circulation.

    Im pretty sure a lot of parts on ebay come of a stolen car,but at the end of the day i have spent a lot on my car already and can't pay RRP for everything as it's just too much.Even if i happen to buy a stolen part,i have paid for it so do not see how i have done anything wrong.

    I bet i'll be saying the opposite if my mirrors get stolen in the future :ohmy:
