    I have a 2003 Ebony Black A3. Need replacements wing mirrors as there slightly scuffed from someone hitting both sides.

    Would any of these fit?

    Is there any risk in buying these so called "genuine" chrome affect mirrors? Like flaking for example or none-heated?

    Also, one the middle link is for a 2006 A3. Would there be any incompatabilities because mine is a 2003?

    Thank you.

    As long as you have the 8P model the mirrors are all the same.

    I might take you up on that but the thing is I need the glass too but just for one of them to be honest...

    Lemme see if these chromes would be fine because i've always wanted chrome wing mirrors. If not then i'll get in touch within a week mate. Thanks

    be carefull buying the ally ones from ebay, make sure you get the part number as i had a set from the bay which were copies and were fine for about 2 months then they started to bubble.
    got oem ones now and there great.
    totally transform the car and they are a doddle to fit.
    once your new ones arrive you will clearly see how to fit ..
