    Mk3's and folding wing mirrors

    Does anyone know of any folding wingmirrors that easily fit onto a Mk3 Astra?

    Unfortunately I live next door to a sh*thole pub, and their patrons are subscribers to the enraging entertainment of car vandalism and insist on kicking and punching any wing mirror that hasn't been folded in.

    My car's been off the road for the last few months and I'm about to bring it back to life and the last thing I want is to have to keep replacing mirrors on it coz they're not cheap after a while.

    Any suggestions other than standing at the window with a rifle?

    Cheers

    Nah mine is one of the last of the Mk3s. The mirrors look like they should fold in but they don't. I don't think a set of Mk5 ones would fit, and I would need to transfer the electronic system over too coz they're all electronic mirrors whereas mine are levers. Never mind. I'll sort something out. Maybe change the fitting so that it's quick release or something so I can just take it off at night...
