I am thinking about having my Glacier A1's mirrors wrapped in carbon. They looked really nice on Aston's R8 (JLS), but not sure the A1 can pull it off haha. :lol:

What do you think?

I think the contrast line would look cool, but i'm not too keen on it myself, i prefer the one colour look. Even the rear panel where the number plate sits would look nice... Similar to the A1 Clubsport rear.

senner tuning do a carbon mirror cover. I remember seeing them somewhere for sale but their website doesn't seem to let me on the 'shop' section now, or any other section for that matter. Anyone else seen them?

I've got a feeling they would use adhesive and they are stuck on

I'm trying to find a manual for the A1, like a Haynes or a Bentley but its a bit 'new' at the moment, just for little upgrades like this.

Thanks mate :)

There was another thread from earlier in the year but not sure where it is now. It looks like there is about 4 screws behind the glass you have to undo. But without taking the glass out (scary stuff) i dont think you can get to them.

I am going to try to wrap them tomorrow on the car. I will report back :)

I don't get it...you buy a premium car and then you want to cover it in crappy fake carbon fibre? Would understand if it was a naff car like an old fiesta or something! Sigh...

It's not for you to "get it". It's not your A1 they're talking about, it's their personal A1. I'm sure "they" would appreciate your respect. I'm sure they respect your opinion about how their A1's look, but at the end of the day it's just your opinion. :|
