    I think I know the answer to this one but have I fitted the wrong mirrors to my A3? Could these be facelift mirrors I'm trying to fit on my '99 pre-facelift?

    Very odd. Never spotted that difference before, but I'd say from the curvature that I can see the mirror in your pic is a facelift.

    Any pics of the full mirror glass?

    Definitely 8l mirrors, can I swap the base plates from the ones I'm taking off? They appear to be ever so slightly bigger on my current ones which obviously fit properly
