    Up until now how been tempted to get the S3 chrome mirrors..... until I saw the price from Audi! I've seen a couple of cheaper options on the net but im sure the look / finish wont be the same. Has anyone done this??

    I guess you get what you pay for.... (but £500!!)

    Genuine ones do come up quite regularly on eBay though you've got to wonder where from...

    They are usually cheaper - £100-200.

    The genuine ones look heaps better becuase they are aluminium rather than chrome and yes you can tell the difference.

    I personally feel you should never buy 2nd hand mirrors from ebay. it just promotes the theft of your nice shiney ones! The BMW community have a huge problem with the M3 mirrors and have petioned ebay to ban all listings for them without baseplates.

    I am un-aware of how easy the audi ones are to pinch, but any way of stopping the scummy b@stards from knicking mirrors must be good. If people wont buy them, they wont steal them!

    never really thought they were nicked but i suppose they could be. I have been watching out for some on ebay and can say the last 3-4 sets all went for about £250, a little too much for my blood - even saw last minute bidding at around midnight for a set!! If anybody here has put some on can they see a way to secure them to the vehicle. The idea occured to me that if you can afix a braided cable to the inside of the housing and thread it through with the elec wires and find a mounting point inside the door it would at least slow the stealing process down??

Gutting really then i bought another pair and well dey got knicked again but this time only da driver-side as i got out wen i heard my alarm. So another lil pinch dent and NO MIRROR. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif

    Got mine from a guy on ebay germany. £220 delivered, brand new in vag box. He sells a lot to the UK. A few on here have bought from him. Do a search for threads on here regarding them. I've posted his link and ebay name on here before.
