    Default Door Mirror Incident

    Well in the "light" winds we had down here today a truck managed to fire half a tree at my car, luckily for me it smashed straight into my passenger wing mirror and not through my windscreen.

    Basicaly I thnk it is destroyed, there is no plastic cover front and back anymore, the glass is completley shatters and I think the frame that the covers clip to and that hold the motor might be broke to. The electrics still work

    As it is an SRi they are obviously colour coded, what sort of cost will I be looking at to repace it in Black Sapphire

    Cheers

    Does £270ish include the colour coding

    Does anybody think the Steinmetz sports mirrors will fit to my SRi, they are showing as £175 each but not sure if they come colour coded

    Cheers

    are they really that much? (the vaux ones I mean) A mirror fro my astra G including the glass and plastic cover was £110 all in from vaux parts dept at my local dealers. I bought a paint aerosol as well (about £7) and painted it myself - looked really good.

    I don't suppose it was the n/s was it as mine doesn't go up or down electrically?

    I know what you mean about the wind. It blew my car port down on top of the missus car and put a large scratch above the door. When I moved her car a bl00dy fence panel blew down & 3 roof tiles landed right where it was parked before I moved it. The last straw was when a 12 foot trampoline left someone's garden & blew down my street, so I parked the Vectra in a clear area within my local supermarket car park

    Thats what I was going to sugest, any excuse for a mod, the steinmetz ones are stunning ...They come primed though so you would have to paint them ..

    Just rang parts and they are telling me £105 VAT for the mirror and the casing, he reckons I could be looking at £50-£60 for spraying the front and rear parts.

    Then it would need fitting, they would probably charge 2 hours so that would make the £270 seem about right

    Cheers

    I go through some tight roads on the way to work - never considered how expensive it would be to replace one of those things. Ouch.
