    Hi guys and girls, Im new to the whole Audi scene, used to have an MG ZR, before that an MG ZS and started of with an Escort Gti. Anyway I recently bought a 2007 model A3 sportsback and after reading through the handbook Ive decided I want to buy a few extras. The first will hopefully be the folding mirrors as I only have the standard electric heated ones. What I wanted to know though is do Audi sell you just the parts or do you have to have them fitted by them too? The other question is this, on previous cars I ve owned if you were to say upgrade the mirrors as I want to do here then all you had to do was get the part and swap it over, and insall the new switch. The cables and adapters were pre installed on the car to allow you to install it yourself. Is that the same with the Audi or would you have to install additions to the wiring loom?

    Thanks guys,
    Chris

    The folding mirrors still leave them sticking out at almost a 45 degree angle.
