Definitely I'd go with the VW OEM gloss black covers though - I quite fancy those anyway and you have the perfect chance to do it now and not feel like you've spent money replacing a perfectly good part :-)

I'd agree!

Got mine from here: https://vdsshop.co.uk/products/gloss-black-mirror-covers-for-mk7-golf

NOW - 2018 Mk7.5 GTI Performance 5dr DSG, Tungsten Silver
GONE - 2017 Mk7.5 GTI 5dr DSG, Indium Grey

Thank you all for the advice, I have ordered a pair of used VW original power folding ones from eBay as suggested by barrym381 and after studying a few YouTube vids I will fit them myself.
I will post pictures once they are on the car.

Well done for taking this on. As said, door mirrors are not a bad job to tackle. The second one will be an absolute doddle! Good Luck with it. Let us know how it goes. 😊

If you can fix a mirror, you can fix a bike. If you can fix a bike, then you can fix a car. If you can fix a car you can learn to fix a Lynx mark 8 helicopter.

It’s mostly about confidence, isn’t it? 🙂
