    Hi, new to this forum so thought this would be the best place to start. This is my black s3, currently standard besides an s2000 filter.

    The s3 is my daily driver, my project car is an old ford (not the orion in the background :ermm:) but nevertheless I still have quite a few plans for it so watch this space :icon_thumright:

    Sadly not green I'm not sure on the actual colour of the e36 but it's a silver blue? It was only £600 with full bmw history 70k miles and hardly a mark on the body work would of been rude not to have it. I'll try and find some more pictures out was a nice upgrade from her old ignis and cost less then half!

    Needs a bit of detailing to blend the door into the rear 1/4 (audi dealer painted it) but I took some pics with my new ultra wide lens. Want to take some in a better location at some point.

    I'm a Nikon fan boy, but need to get a short lens for car shows.

    I wouldn't mind a fixed, but it is boring looking through an album of pictures all taken from the same distance. I guess it just pushes you to try new things and take more detail in your shots though.

    I do like the prime lenses. Just move your feet :) The quality is generally better apparently. I love the depth of field on the 50mm I have. My boss just "popped out" at lunch today and laid down $2,500 on an 85mm. Madness.

    Have I missed something here?

    You are on about his silver aluminium mirrors that were pretty much standard on the S/RS model of Audi cars in the mid 90s up until now - but have recently been changes to the brushed affect rather than chrome/aluminium finish.

    If you are on about them then they are hardly different tbh- if anything there more common than colour coded wing mirrors on the 8L S3! lol

    Oh and for the record I love my OEM aluminium mirrors :)

    It's okay....you're still a noob - you have much to learn young one :thumbsup:

    Ohhh and if you do go for a set of the mirrors then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE buy genuine ones and not the tacky ebay/poundland ones. The genuine ones are solid metal - not plastic covers..... very useful when you get those idiots that think they can barge there way through a space not wide enough for there wing mirrors....

    I have so far seen 3 cars demolish there entire drivers side wing mirror and glass because they thought they'd take on my mighty aluminum OEM mirrors :p Stupid Vauxhall owners! lol

    Yep.

    Big clumps of metal half way up the body in line with the bulk head ruining the polar moment. These have no place on an A3.

    Bleurgh.

    As SK said above....unless you are going for a full on A3 rep - then I just don't think the mirrors go that well with the rest of the stype of the A3 personally.

    I'd keep a look out on ebay/gumtree/PH and here for people braking there cars....I imagine they will cost a small fortune if you went direct to TPS/Audi... especially with them being fully electric, with a heated mirrors and a small tint applied.

    I still have my colour coded ones at home in a box :)

    Says the man with genuine BBS LMs! haha.... :p

    There about £3-4k brand new without the tyres IIRC.

    OEM mirrors should be pocket money ;-)

    Nice lens mate,

    Have just got the Sigma 10-20 but thinking of swapping it for the Sigma 8-16 for serious ultra wide fun!
