    Where can I get the silver mirrors as found on the s4 without going to Audi? I've seen a few sets on eBay but I'm worried about getting the wrong ones or ones that look cheap, also there seems to be Matt silver, silver and chrome so which ones are the right ones for oem look.
    If anyone could help that would be great.
    Thanks

    I'm going to dive in here and say , stay well clear of the eBay ones , i bought some from eBay 6 months ago , the matt version that looked 85% like the original s4 ones. Ok ,so they look the nuts and fitted well , but 6 months in and the matt effect is wearing off and the paint is starting to bubble underneath. I've gone back to the place off eBay where i bought them and surprise surprise I get this on my email ...

    I found out mine had OEM ones on but crewe Audi removed them before I got to see it , probably to pay for the clutch they had to put in...gutted. the clutch would've been fixed on warranty if they left it. :(

    +1 for Wyliss , I'm afraid it's the only way to go .. my second polite email lovingly translated into German also got the same deletion treatment , so Please beware , they will look good for around 6 months and when they start to deteriorate , Do not expect any help or replacements .. especially from ebay shop " goingfast " seller ID car-style-discount[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] [/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Unfortunately it seems that there is nothing you can do to get to them , these products from Germany do not seem to be TUV approved and they do not respond to questions about warranty or guarantees , Ebay .. forget it .. it's outside the 30 or 45 day protection they offer.

    The age old adage of " Buy it Cheap .. Buy it Twice " certainly stands up in this case.

    ok , so my car isn't the cleanest ..:ermm: but clearly shows blistering ... so much for the manufacturing process. If it was due to stonechips etc , i'd say ok .. but it isn't
