    It should be fine mate. They do it on every car so you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Just make sure he positions the mirror back in the same place though because the Autoglass man who done my friends one put it a bit lower than it was before and is kinda in your face.

    Normally if you go through insurance,you just pay the excess & it doesnt affect your premium.

    Mine just cost me £70, but when looking at the invoice it was about £450!!
