    Hi Does anyone know where the best place to get the rs4 look mirror caps? Must be the matt finish and not chrome... really struggling to get some. Dont want to get ripped off paying well over the odds for them.

    Kind regards

    Both of those options require facelift mirrors.

    Believe it or not, Halfords 'aluminium' paint isn't far off the OEM RS4 colour/finish. If you then used a matt lacquer they'd look nearly as good as the real thing for <£20.

    I've done mine like that (got bored of the chrome mirrors I had previously) and am happy with the result.
