    S5 w/o Silver Side View Mirror Covers??

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Just picked up a 2014 S5 3.0T Prestige, and to my surprise (I missed this fawning over all the other aspects of the car) the side view mirror covers match the car color and are not the silver optic I am used to seeing. The engine and everything else in the car is branded S5...so Im wondering how common this is? Was this an option to the original owner? What's the deal?

    Sorry for bad pics, these are from dealer website - haven't taken my own pics yet

    S5 w/o Silver Side View Mirror Covers??

    All b8.5 s5 that's optioned black optics package are equipped with body color mirror covers.

    By looking at the black grill and Ti wheels, you can definitely tell that it's a black optics car. They all have body color mirror covers.

    You are welcome. Just FYI, you can always get silver ones or even carbon fiber ones via ecstuning.

    Yup it has the black optic package, which isn't exactly always easy to find. I have been checking for the last 2 months for a BO package on a b8.5 S4 i am possibly looking to add, but have only came across one.

    Wheels, mirrors and trim is the package. The black optic package window trim is essentially what comes on most A5's and the aluminum trim on the S5's or the A5 S-line is technically the premium trim. Funny how that works I really am a fan of the black trim myself, i was thinking about getting my trim wrapped and Carbon fiber mirror caps on my Deep Sea Blue S5 that has the aluminum trim and mirrors.

    That would look really awesome. This car deal kind of fell on my lap - and I'm not complaining. Coming from a stage 2 A5 2.0T this S5 is a monster. Can't wait to tune this! The only thing cosmetic I wanted to do was change the color of the emblems and maybe the badges too... Maybe something darker to match the wheels and trim

    They switched the black optic trim from the base A5 plastic trim to gloss black trim at some point (don't recall what year)

    Now that you mention that. I remember not long ago being at the dealership and seeing the 2016 model S5 with the 20" wheels with the BO package did have gloss black trim. I thought it was just because t was that "last year model" S5.

    I'm getting mine wrapped professionally. Can't decide if I should go satin or gloss to match up with my deep sea blue color.
