Re: damaged side mirrors (R broski)

How about, get a can of spray paint matched to factory color and repaint the mirror. I redid mine month ago and they look great.

How about replace them with Carbon Fiber Mirrors? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Or install the chrome mirror covers, they have been far more impact resistant than the painted OEMs

Go chrome and do the "brushed" effect on 'em.
