My passenger side mirror is turning cloudy and I have been searching for some replacements. Can anyone tell me if these ould work on the B5 A4:

Or if anyone knows a good deal on a new set please post a link. Thanks in advance.

No, that mirror is not the right shape.

Have you got the auto-dimming mirrors? These have a thick black trim around the outside of the mirror glass (they also dim along with inside mirror at night). They also have a tendency to start leaking sometimes. My passenger mirror leaked then got all foggy. I was lucky to find a used one eBay for $60.

You don't have to replace yours with another auto-dimming one, they are quite expensive new ($250-$300) and used ones are generally more than $100. This is the mirror you need (non auto-dim):

You can always try eBay for deals, but be careful - earlier A4's had a smaller passenger mirror (sometimes called a nemo mirror, or jokingly a suicide mirror). You need the mirror for the 99.5 - 2001.5.

Good Luck.
