Mate, that is one smart looking S3. Love it, it's so clean. The brakes look awesome too.

3 hours to fit the FMIC? I've given up the idea of fitting one as I heard it's a pain in the **** and would take me 3 weeks not 3 hours!

Well i always wanted a auto dim mirror all on fleabay are cream and overpriced,so i got hold of this from a bora,took all i wanted including mirror,fixings,loom,relays ect,comes with auto wiper rain sensor that i will wire in but not fit as of yet,so ive done a mini retro fitting guide.


First is the button on the screen that attaches the original mirror,its a different fitting and i know if i try to remove it it will crack the glass,other option is to buy a new later screen...but not yet


Original twist fit mirror below,auto dim on top.


IMAG1028_zps3f0829e2.jpg



original non dim mirror button.


IMAG1025_zpsaa7a09a8.jpg



The Auto dim mirror has a 20mm hole in the center for the auto wiper option,for now im wiring it in but not fitting it unless i change screens,so it will be in the glove box if need be,the auto dim button fits nicely over the original button,so i bonded it on.


Few ours later...


IMAG1033_zps8c37e038.jpg



view from the rear..


IMAG1034_zpsb699fe0d.jpg



Next was the wiring,i took no shots sorry,but it soldered the blue/black wire into fuse 5 and gave it and earth,the reveres option i left off,the wiper wiring i wired into the back of the wiper relay and all done.


The original mirror sits higher than auto dim mirror,so the tube that runs the wires through needs to be trimmed down.


Before trimming.


IMAG1038_zpsa434f4cf.jpg



and after...


IMAG1039_zps692f7097.jpg



Then just slot the mirror in place,connect the plug,fit covers and your all done.


IMAG1040_zpse72c2df0.jpg



still need to order the lower trims so please ignore..


IMAG1041_zps509635be.jpg



So if i ever change the screen for an later auto dim mirror type all i have to do is pop the rain sensor in place,plug the wiring in and done....probably never happen lol

Hi Mike,yea the yellow one is still kicking about,replaced a coil pack on it the other day lol

I managed to get some used and very tired looking original facelift S3 lights.... they do need some work lol but they were dirt cheap!

IMAG1400_zpscee54c6e.jpg


After stripping them down i polished the lenses up,800,1200 then 2000 grit,G3 and they came up well!



Next was to replace the broken lower level adjusters with some alloy ones.



I also wanted rid of the chrome,got a colour match to the plastics door blades,cleaned off the chrome and painted..





Back together without lenses on...



After the cutting of the wing and some plastic trimming i used acid etch primer and wax oil to make sure water does not get into the wings!

Before



After ....much better !!
