    They're not bad but I don't see the attraction over the standard/old mirrors - but at least they're not silver! :D

    New smaller mirrors again, on the coming facelift. I find the current a bit large.

    you don't need to mod the baseplates if you get the same type of mirrors i.e. 3dr for 3dr and SB for SB

    i've just bought a set and after i have Audi look at my door lock problem under warranty i'm going to give fitting them a go with a "How To" guide - but i'll say don't hold your breath because i'll probably make a hash of it LOL

    There are two ways to get them fella.
    First is fit new door modules and iirc some rewire is needed
    second way is to tap into the original Side repeaters on the ceb

    Mechanical fitment is a straight swap as long as you get the correct ones for you car (3 or 5 door)
    They can be made to fit vise versa, but is a lot easier with the right ones.

    one member on here did a full facelift front end. he plugged his mirrors into his old door modules and they've worked completely fine for him.

    i haven't got my mirror caps painted yet, so i didn't get around to doing this. sorry about that!
