    don't think they will mate , there should be loads of S3 mirrors on ebay there usually is but beware when buying stuff like this as there has been a shed load of high end car thefts , if not the whole car just the mirrors so they can be sold on ebay so there is a good chance that a set of mirrors could be off a members car on here as loads have been stolen , just letting you know buddy

    Should do if they're both the 'dumbo' style. My Black mirrors are A5 ones. Can't remember the part number, but they were the same for both models. Was a straight swap.

    I know what you mean, hope these arent stolen and i park my car outside and not in garage so abit worrying.

    Ive got one more question, is there any info on here or another site to show me how to fit these on, my sidemirrors atm are standard with no lights so im thinking i would need to connect some wireing?
