    B@stard Vandals!!!

    Went to my car this morning to find my drivers mirror smashed off and spread across the road!!!

    Luckily and thankfully a local resident saw what happened and reported it to the police. Two 'youths' were looking into his car and then wandered up to mine and hit the wing mirror.......petty scum bags! I hope they get run over by a Robin Reliant!!! I'm soooooo angry!!!

    Anyway, called insurance to see what they could do....given the time of year I thought I may have to so that but they want £200 excess!!! They can go jump too!!!

    Caled 2 Vauxhall dealers and one said the whole unit is £70 the other said they have all the parts and it is £104.11 in VAT.....Does anyone know if that is right????

    I have managed to get the day off today to sort it but need to be in 2morrow so needs sorting today....any ideas of cheaper places around Kingston??

    £104 doesn't sound too far off. Someone took my drivers mirror off last October and it cost her £125 to replace without the glass but including painting.

    Bloody Saxo drivers, although at least I was lucky that she stopped.

    you would have agreed this excess when you took out the policy.

    Best bet is to try local scrap yards.

    I know I agreed it, but can't blame me for being angry when a couple of idiots decide they will break my mirror off and I could potentially get stung with £200!! Just doesn't seem fair.....If I'd have hit something and broken it off then fair enough!!

    Anyway...think I've resolved it. I had to replace it a few years ago when someone hit the drivers mirror when passing by. They paid so got a new mirrir and fitted it. It was only the casing that broke last time and the hoarder in me decided to keep the old one!!! Good thing as I can now put that one back on until I get a new one cheap!!

    Cheers
