    first time happened to me was actually on the day i passed my test! Same thing as happened to you his side was blocked tried to fit ans ended up smashing my glass!

    Second time i was on a country lane in the summer and there was a part of the lane that got narrow and some old b*****d goes flying past and smacks my wing mirror cover up and it ended up in my lap! So luckily didnt get lost.

    Both times i stopped and watched the other person speed off...

    Its gonna be even more of a pain if you have the colour coded back casings

    Had to bite the bullet for mine and pay £25 of ebay just for the casing after looking for a few months

    Don't go through Vauxhall - it costs over £100 & even more than that if it's electric.

    I had this when a woman in a mini decided to drive down the middle of the road (literally) taking up her lane AND mine. She never stopped. I was able to do a U turn & i chased after her, but i got held up by traffic & she lost me as she went down back roads. Infuriating.

    As a result (of this AND the do i had last year when someone drove into me yet >I< was seen to be at fault), whenever i'm in a situation where it's a bit close, i always try my best to get the plate of the oncoming car just in case.

    Best thing for you now is eBay, scrappies or the for sale section.
