    Stolen S3 Rep mirrors.

    Some scum bag decided to snap both full mirrors off ealier, leaving the bare wires! All done within literally 10mins!

    Anyone an idea how much they cost to replace? I've got the original mirror caps so only need the units.

    Cheers

    Hey Martin, sorry to hear that mate. Hope the scum gets his just desserts for damaging other people hard earned property!

    I've got a standard set (electric adjust, heated, non-folding, non-dimming) for sale if you're interested? Nigel, the mighty tea drinking "NHN" upgraded me to electric folding ones recently. They have the S3 brushed aluminum covers on, but happy to take those off and sell separately if you have your own. I'm in the South East too, near Maidstone. Drop me a PM if you're interested.

    Hope you get it all sorted soon.
