    Hi all,

    Just purchased a set of genuine (or so I'm told) aluminium mirrors from e bay. The whole thing, not just the caps, but my original mirror glass does not fit correctly as I hoped it would (see picture below). The seller claims that the original glass from a 2001 S3 should fit - is there a difference between this and my 1999 mirror glass?

    I have been to my local Audi dealer who were less than helpful, and telephoned another Audi dealer, and so far I am no closer to solving the problem as there is no part number attached to the new mirrors!

    Can anyone help me identify the part number for the replacement glass that I need... please??

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok - so I have facelift mirrors, that's one problem solved... If anyone out there has an S3 that came with facelift mirrors, please can I borrow your chassis no, part number (if you know it) or registration to order the replacements from Audi...?

    Cheers.

    Mirror glass was £64.85 all in (inc VAT). I'm told they would be cheaper from vagparts.com but I was too impatient to wait for delivery...

    Good luck!
