    There is muck on the door which would indicate that they kicked them off.
    Are there any mucky foortprints on or near the car that might help in catching the person. Under sole shape/pattern of shoe and also the size could help with nailing them so take pics.

    Police have been round and dusted for prints etc... looks more like the feet were used to pull them off, apparantly there have been a few crimes like this on Audis and golfs with the mirrors being stolen!

    I guess they still fetch good money on eBay :(

    Im just glad my car hasnt been touched and Im not on one of the most favourable estates in Carlisle. Although sayin that my cousin had genuine M3 mirrors knicked off his BMW in the same way, kicked off, unlucky for him they scratched car while doing this.

    mate dunno if you'll install the same mirrors but you should get some CCTV to keep an eye out.

    its happened to my mate, hes installed 3 wireless cameras and leave em to record at night all hidden. apart from some weird neighbour activity lol he can see exactly whats going on and hes just waiting to see if they come back! if they do, god help them!

    more and more people are installing hidden CCTV! its needed nowadays not like how it used to be, theiving cunts wherever you go!

    other option install those talking alarms if anyone comes in a 1metre radius it start bleeping and if they come closer it triggers the alarm! mates got on his porsche! it works.

    Same happened to mine (though standard mirrors) a few weeks back. They only took the drivers side though.
    Curiously enough broken off in the same fashion and from a Noggy blue too.
    You anywhere near Radstock outside Bath at all?

    Gutted for you mate. This sort of thing makes me want to sell up and leave these shores. Like you said you cant have anything nice these days. I was thinking of getting some RS4 brushed alloy mirrors for my noggy S4, this has put me right off.

    You are not alone apparantly according to a you gov poll 40% of the population are thinking about or are taking steps to leave the UK, in 2006 only 22% were thinking the same thing.

    So much for things can only get better.

    Cheers for the words guys, and I agree, things are getting worse, and I don't see things turning around any time soon!

    As an update, I called the insurers, I'm taking it to an Audi garage so they can order in the part, do the work and I told them I'm making a claim on the anti corrosion warrenty while I'm at it as I've nothiced a bit that needs sorting!

    So from tomorrow I could be driving a horrid little hatchback for a couple of weeks while this all gets sorted! lol

    The mirrors alone cost £248.19 + VAT Each!!!!!!!

    Just a sad state of affairs really that you can't have something others can make money from, the car is still in for repair so I am looking at sorting out CCTV before I get it back!

    As an update to my original post, I took the car to Audi, they loaned me a horrid Toyota Aygo (1 Litre of RAW power lol) and sent off the quote to the insurance (£1350 something + VAT) just waiting in the authorisation, should be in Monday and they can start work on it!

    Condolences mate, that's just sickening - ******* little cunts who did that to your car need a sledge hammer taking to their kneecaps - they wouldn't kick any more mirrors off then.

    why the f do insurance companys charge more for having nice cars but give everybody the same crappy courtesy car? Surely some sort of like for like should apply?

    Quick update, should be getting the car back Friday with any luck, it's then booked in on Wednesday for an alarm with dual proximity sensors and also an omni sensor to detect movement etc.. as the Audi stock one seems pretty hopeless!

    If someone else is at fault I will be using a company called Bristol and London. Basically they give you a like for like and put it in the insurance claim :)
