    Default Door mirror question...help!

    Hello all, just a quick question, my Signum's drivers side door mirror got smashed yesterday, and I am now seeking a replacement.
    It is the auto-dimming (non-folding) type
    I visited my local VX dealership earlier and got quoted £150 just for the glass!, but curiously he mentioned that it is not the same as the Vectra C's mirrors? is that true? I thought from the B pillar forward the cars are near enough identical.
    So, any thoughts on that? also, does anyone know whether it's an MoT failiure having a smashed wing mirror?
    cheers guys

    Mirrors are the same mate. The glass from Auto dimming Vec will fit.

    I really would have thought they were the same mirror.

    I had mine totally smashed, and it cost £205 for an entire new housing and glass fitted and painted. I do think that it would be an MOT failure on the driver's side.

    Are you sure you are being quoted for the right part. I think I can remeber when I needed to replace the door mirror and was told there were three different types. Normal, Auto-dimming and the folding ones. The folding ones where the £150 ones while the dimming ones where about £30. I think the part number for the dimming one is 24461569 but don't quote me on that. Check it out!!
