48 posts in this topic

Hi Pah,

Thanks. You right cannot tell until real close up. I like yr 2 audi, I actually did a bit of pain t cut and paste to see what siler mirrors look on the convertible, espcially to show wife and kid and it looks ery nice, and possibly even better when the roof is down. Is this ok -

Those you have a link to are the mirror-chrome versions, which I (personally) don't really like. I'll keep an eye out on e-bay, and let you know if I see anything.

When I get a chance, I'll take a photo of my A4 with the new mirrors and the top down to show you exactly what they're like. Not much chance I'll do it today though - it's snowing like mad at the moment!!

Yes they are chrome, ideally want matt finish. Thanks for helping, if you or any other user come across matt finish mirror plese post here.

i'll give it 1 -2 weeks, after that i will have to replace with new black one.

Hi P3ety,

Glad you posted that comment and link, it the best one I seen so far, also matt. so would also like others opinion on it. costing £130 is not cheap and want to be sure they right before taking the risk.

Are these made by in.pro in germany?

Those definitely look like a good bet. They actually look a bit more reflective than the very matt ones I have on the A6, but a bit less reflective than the original S3's I have on my A4. Sort of half way between if you know what I mean.

They certainly look like a good deal at £120...I'd be buying those if I didn't have any already. Also, if you don't like them, you can always put them back on ebay at a bit less money, and sell them in no time!

I took a pic of my A4 with the genuine Audi mirrors on this morning in my office car park. Not great as I took it with my phone....and I didn't have time to fold the top down. Not only that, but the car is really dirty at the moment, and the mirrors look less shiny that they are due to the road grime!

I'll clean them up and take a picture with the top down ASAP!

Cheers

Paul

Yhanks pah for the advice. Yr car looks very nice with the silver mirror, stands out makes it look different and more stylish and posh!

P3ety, What you think I am going to go for those. Looks the best we can find at the moment.

Mine will go on a similar car to pah, a black a4 convertible, so will look very good.

I also need to buy passenger mirror glass, on ebay they £25. Will these be ok and not superior quality. will also try local spares shop?

I think you will find they are only about £30 from Audi. You know it will be good then, by the time you have paid postage it will probably be about the same price. Might be worth a phone call and it is always worth asking for a discount, you can usually get 10% on most things. Good luck:)

I bought the following, but the covers are more like silver than chrome or aluminium? Also I briefly took them outside to see how they looked, a few drops of rain fell on it and it appears to leave smudge marks after drying it off? Even notice a finger print mark which does not come off that easily? why is this. I am considering returning them? Possible go for the Chrome one on ebay?

This is one of the reasons why I may go OEM. I know they may cost a tadge more but at least then you know you are getting the exact shading etc and the quality will be spot on.

only OEM ones look OEM. dont fall for the matt OEM like gibberish. They look nothing like OEM. They dont look bad. They're just obviously not OEM. I had some on my old B6 cab. Pics in gallery! I'd pay the extra and get the proper ones!

...or dont bother.

I tried again this morning in the light and they do look ok actually.

But the smudge marks from rain and finger prints is worrying, especially as it not easily removed by giving a short dust.

What should I do?

To give them a nice look and to clear the finger prints etc try some QD. This is a spray used to enhance the appearance of your paintwork. Well worth purchase. Try elite car care on the net, they have many makes available. A particular favourite of mine is a QD called clearkote quik shine, very nice stuff!!

as an alternative to buying the two covers singley from a dealer ask them to order you 8E0 098 507 , saves you near enough £100 for the pair .

Hi,

Just picking this thread up again. I'm thinking about buying some S mirrors for my black A4 Cab 2006. I've had a look on eBay and found some Alu/Matt Finish Mirror Covers on eBay

Has anyone got an opinion on these, or can they recommend anything better? I'm trying not pay full wack from Audi.

Kind Regards,

Tim

I bought these from ebay and they the alum colour ones, not chrome and they go great with the windscreen chrome frame. Had it for 6 months and no problems and fitting was easy.

Thanks everyone for helping me find and choose the correct mirror covers
