Lots of people have changed them for standard S-Line mirrors. Spraying the S3 mirrrors would be a waste of time because you can sell them and make a profit over the standard A3 mirrors.

The new S3 mirror caps are plastic (I have just bought a pair). So they will paint ok. A friend of mine told me I should have just painted my red ones with aluminium paint!

They're actually plastic coated with aluminium thin layer, you can see from the insides the layer of alum, where as my s3 8L's were full on alum, was very knocked at that as kinda cheap & tacky for audi but I can see the green side of it saves on wasting alum as long as the covers are cheaper than older ones

Have you got the ones with the indicators in mate? If so, how much did they cost you?
