    Just trying to work out if the shape got facelifted or not?

    The standard ones I had on my 1999 A6 looked a funkier shape than standard A4 mirrors on Ebay.

    Cheers ;)

    Yep, 2 different shapes, pre and post-facelift.

    Pre-facelift has a blunter shape towards the outside, while post-facelift has more of a taper / trapezoid shape.

    Mountings are the same, and I'm glad you're getting rid of the M3 replicas you're currently sporting.

    They came with the car,...............and I've put up with them for nearly 3 years lol

    Somebody went to the trouble of spraying/fitting a rear RS4 spoiler and some RS4 reps, but they ran out of taste when they got to the mirrors. They do actually FUNCTION very well as mirrors though oddly enough :)

    Nope... first time I've mentioned it on here I think.

    Got them from a guy I know who was breaking a Passat 1.8T. Got a few other bits off him too.

    Will post pics when I get them on... should be this weekend. They'd bolt straight on, but the electrical connectors are different.
