    a lot of ppl have been buying carbon effect vinyl off eBay and doing it themselves. might be worth giving that a go?

    i might be able to sell you a set of cheap mirror caps. i bought some MY09 wing mirrors to fit onto my 8P2, and P5SND had a set of wing mirrors in the right colour. mine aren't in great shape but would be perfect for wrapping, so if i buy his then i have a set of caps spare if that makes sense.

    have fun trying to wrap them it is near on impossible i have had a company try to wrap mine the mirror covers are just to curvy
    the problem is where the mirror meets the car the shape means you are left with a lot of excess wrap that needs slicing to fit which looks poo!

    or buy P5SND if he hasn't sold them already. he'll give them to ya at a good price and he's OCD like you wouldn't believe so you know they'll be PERFECT

    I don't think they will. I know MY10 is definitely different to MY11 cars so 08 mirrors won't fit a MY11

    shame thats what i thought might have to go to audi direct to get a spare set for spraying then looked into it before and it was roughly £180 for a set

    Ouch that's a steep cost. I thought abou getting mie wrapped then can always remove easy. Was quoted just under £70 for spoiler and mirrors in north london by a big company tha wrap. If they are professional surely they can do it easy.

    Saw a Carrera gt wrapped the other week and those mirrors and whole body are really curvy!!!
