    Can you not browse round car salvage yards anymore?

    Some thieving **** has taken my door mirror covers on my Astra. Tried a few salvage yards for silver ones or any and I will spray them.

    None of them let me in the yard and said I could only have the whole mirror not the covers. I don't want the mirror I have a perfectly functioning one I just want some covers.

    Can't you go round salvage yards any more picking the bits you want and then paying for them?

    If anybody knows of one in the South Yorkshire area then please let me know.

    The one down our end do basically the same things, I myself had to get some mirror covers but they would only sell me the mirrors as a whole like what happened to yourself. Even wen't there with a mate a few weeks as he wanted a spare wheel as his old one had a puncture and it was just cheaper to go to the scrappy, but the bloke there refused to sell one as he didn't have any in 'stock' with the same profile

    Tbh it shouldn't really be any of their business as long as they get money...

    I thought the whole point was you had cars you pulled bits off. Why can't they sell the covers for £5 then the mirror for £20 or both for £25? It would certainly stop the thieving gits who nick them off my car! I wonder how they make money because they are always shady as anything and empty.
