Wrapping side mirrors
« on: October 28, 2016, 02:24:20 pm »
Been doing a few bits and pieces the TT lately to  "premium it up", aluminium dead pedal, aluminium shifters, LED upgrades etc.

I quite like the look of the brushed aluminium side mirrors...don't like the price though.

a) in your opinion would these suit a silver TT ?
b) if so would wrap work ?
c) could it be DIY, or being curved would it be hard to work with ?

I enquired once about this for my previous S4. It can be done but wont look quite right as it needs to cover the front then come over the edge and back in towards the mirror glass.

The 'brushed' lines wont all go the same way either which will give it away

I had this issue on my car, but as mine is a gloss black vinyl its unnoticeable. Considered the below look?
