Re: Aaaahhh....freaking kids!!! (mlieras)

If your deductible is 500 dollars or less, it might be cheaper to claim it. If you have power folding mirrors, they get quite pricey. More than 400-500 dollars IIRC.

Re: Aaaahhh....freaking kids!!! (bb vign)

Hang in there. I think I've seen some for sale recently in the classifieds from guys who have upgraded to power folding mirrors. These will be mirrors and guts only, no caps, but it's bound to be cheaper. <p>Take a look over there.

Re: Aaaahhh....freaking kids!!! (mlieras)

Well, no luck on eBay or Craigs List for the Bay Area. Mirror assembly from volvo is $380!!! and the glass is $90 - at least I can salvage the painted cover...what an expensive a%* mirror!<p>I wish I would have caught the punk that did this...just love to see money go down the toilet.
