    Wing mirror kicked off again.

    Hi,
    Well someones done it again.
    This time its totally busted.
    I have an Astra 1.6 16v Arctic 2 on an R plate (97).
    The passenger one have been kicked off, and now the whole housing is off.
    Can anyone suggest a cheap place to pick one up?
    Problem I have is that my MOT is due and I wm worried that I will get a fail.
    I need to get it sorted anyway but I would rather pay less.
    Hope you can help me.

    Al

    again! wasnt there another thread about it over the weekend!?

    you sure you havent made any enemies recently?

    tbh what id do is rig up a IR camera or something to get the buggers who are doing it .. take it down to the police.

    i can only suggest that you whip down to your local scrap yard and buy any ol' astra mirror you find and then get it sprayed up at a later date after your MOT

    I think I have made an enemy.
    Some little **** was chucking litter in my street.
    I asked him not to, he was abusive and I thew a pasty at him, so yeah....enemy alright.
    I found one on ebay for £15 inc deliv....is that about right?
    Also it would be great to get fold in ones....is that possible?

    Let people know where you are so if they have one, you might be able to pick up.

    I know.....afterwards I realised my error.
