    Default Ouch

    We have a nice big garage so when the snow comes we drive the vectra in and then we don't need to de-ice it in the morning. Then the other morning the wife decided the door way was not big enough and smashed the wing mirror off GREAT!! I am not going to the stealers for a new one ill get one from the scrap yard are they all the same as mine is a face lift, am I just after a vectra C wing mirror ??

    Ouch, gutted for ya mate. But you should be OK with either face lift or pre facelift.

    How bad is it? if its just the painted case then then you dont need the full mirror. Cant imagine its bad at the kinda speed you go in and out the garage??

    No, you require a door mirror. They stopped fitting wing mirrors a long time ago because you needed extra long arms to adjust them.
