    Different mate, the facelift ones are different shape. Facelift is 2 screws underneath I think? Prefacelift is take the glass out and 3 screws. The alloy wing mirrors have torx screws with a finer thread also.

    Hi, where abouts did you get your covers from? I'm interested in a pair of these too - I'm pre-facelift s3 also. Are they a matte finish or shiney chrome finish?

    help needed with this. On the facelift covers is it only the 2 screws that need undoing to remove the casing?
