    Default smashes wing mirror glass

    hello to all. had a moment with an oncomming car today and we hit wing mirrors as we squeezed through the same gap lol. smashed the glass to hell on the drivers side. managed to get a replacment mirror from halfords but thats not a long term fix. my vx parts dept are closed so cant get a price. anyone here bought the glass before and how much did you pay. i have non heated wing mirrors but thet are electric. any advice would be great

    many thanks Darryl

    Err, the mirror glass isn't pence, it's a fair few quid.

    Are you sure they aren't heated Darryl? I thought heated mirrors were standard across the range?

    I wouldnt have thought the glass was very expensive but then I havent had to buy one for a VX. The clio one was £120 of which £70 was forthe electric unit and the spraying, bout £40 was fitting and the £10 was glass.

    normal heated drivers side is about 30/35 quid from VX mate
    lucky you didnt have dimmings glass, that would set you back 120 quid just for the glass
