Alternatives to 159 Ti "satin" mirrors - opinions
My 2008 159 Ti has the "satin" effect mirror pod covers fitted, as you'd expect.
One is a little scratched, but more importantly I don't really like the way they look. IIRC satin metal was originally an Audi styling adornment for the "S" models, and Audi is absolutely the last manufacturer I would wish to emulate.
So, I am considering changing them for body-coloured versions, but have also considered gloss black a la the new Saabs.
I'd keep the originals so they are present come re-sale / part-ex time.
