    To cut a long story short, some absolute c**t snapped off and stole the mirrors from my facelift 8l. I've managed to track down a set of pre-facelift S3 mirrors for a reasonable price that I know for a fact aren't stolen (wouldn't want to make these twats efforts worthwhile). Would anyone kindly let me know if the plugs fit from a pre-facelift to a facelift? and considering I'd have the whole of both mirrors (not just the caps which I know aren't interchangeable) the mirrors should mount on, right?

    Many thanks in advance for any replies.

    Sorry to hear matey, thieving scums out there! But I'm sure they do as s3 rav has a prefacelift a3 one on his and it works. Although he needs a facelift house for his but that's another story lol.

    As Gops says the pins do fit fine. But obviously the housing won't fit properly/flush! I've got a pair of aluminium mirrors if your interested.
