    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

    Sorry to hear this, thieving scum bags really piss me off

    Off the top of my head i can get the mirror bases for folding mirrors at around £140 ish a side
    I would need to have a look and find out how much the standard bases are

    Hey Martin, sorry to hear that mate. Hope the scum gets his just desserts for damaging other people hard earned property! :gun2:

    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.

    Simon

    Yep it is really pathetic,and whats worse members on here have fuelled this kind of thing by buying chrome covers off ebay,thus entering a circle which hopefully comes back round to bite them on the ass.
    :no:

    Thanks for the offer mate, but going to stick with 8P2's from Simon (MacrosTheBlack) :thumbsup:

    At least the ones I had didn't come from the bay :thumbsup: although will prob end up there. All for the sake of a few ££.

    Sorry for the late reply
    good thing you got replacements sorted. That pic just makes me livid! I hope the guy that knicked it gets gangrene and has to have his limbs cut off!

    Mine are definitely being vinyl wrapped.

    God they are big mirrors though, I've driven vans with
    smaller door mirrors.
