    audi,s fault for making such an expensive external item where thieving little druggy toerags can get them, the bmw m3 owners have the same **** happening daily.....with their mirrors
    sorry for the news, especially damage to the doors what a nightmare ...

    They need their friggin hands chopped off, mine got taken not so long ago so know how you feel bud.

    Still F'd off about it but there is nothing you can do. I thought about replacing them as they can be had for £150 but whats the point when they'll only get stolen again.

    This has happened to far too many people! I've only just recently bought some and put them on, but it’s making me worry like hell that some vandal is trashing my car while I'm sleeping... I keep jumping out of bed at every noise, and the first thing I look for every morning when walking to the car is if my mirror covers are still there.

    They will mate. I just bought one from a scrappy which happened to have a chrome cap on it. Job done for now.
