    Hi guys.

    I was putting my S3 mirrors on but cracked the mirror-glass as i was pulling it off...:keule:

    Audi want £30 + VAT but was wondering if anyone had a spare one that they could sell to me at a cheaper price? Euro do them cheap but have none in stock...

    Its for the Drivers Side and its just heated.

    I also have a spare passenger side mirror (heated) if anyones after one.

    Cars a 2004 model - prefacelift mirrors

    Its this mirror if after:

    Quite Fragile things! lol

    I done the passnger side one first as i had a spare mirror for that side and that went fine but then as i only had one drivers side, it had to crack! lol

    Sorry - Who's GSF ?

    The tip I found AFTER cracking the mirror is to remove the bottom black plastic part first, and push the mirror from behind - worked nicely for me.

    GSF are the guys formerly known as German & Swedish - http://www.gsfcarparts.com/ - I got a deal as the lad in my local branch used to work for me, but they should still be cheaper than Audi.

    Is that a full mirror from Macess or just a stick-on glass?

    I didn't realise GSF were as much as that - I paid just over half that...

    Thats for the mirror and plastic black bit... Got to get up before 12 on saturday and double check and if not, breakers is on the list! Macess is trade only but i have a company account there (somehow :S lol)

    Thats for the older model but had a look and they're about £20 but non genuine! Hmmm...

    Thanks for the link though :D
