    I used to own a pre-facelift 2000 Audi S3 in Brilliant Black. It had the standard body coloured mirrors and the wing mirror glass was a light tinted blue colour.

    8 years later and I've always wondered why my facelift 2002 S3 has standard wing mirror glass (i.e no tint). This one came with aluminium mirrors from the factory - could that be why? Or were pre-facelifts always tinted? Or is it to do with the paint colour??

    Why did my previous S3 have tinted mirror glass and my current S3 doesn't - just wondered.......
