    Heard a 'crack' the other night outside the house, but didn't think anything of it until I found this today:

    Not happy... :mad: Looks like a pretty clean and deliberate job.

    Anyone know what it's going to cost to sort out?

    Do you still have the mirror and the casing and is it still in tact?

    Yeah, cause when they steal it they leave the mirror and casing behind! :rolleyes:

    @OP What's the car? Is the mirror electric/heated etc?

    2007 Golf. Heated, but manually operated. Standard black, not colour coded.

    I thought the OP was referring to a car drove pass and nicked the wing mirror and it's come clean off. Rather than it was stolen :rolleyes:

    They're about £50 off the top of my head. Had to replace one my Dad smashed on his Golf Plus.

    If you've got Torx screwdrivers and you feel confident you can fit it yourself.

    Seems a bit of an odd thing to nick, considering its just a standard wing mirror and a relatively inexpensive item!

    Probably someone needed the same part so nicked it from you rather than buying one.

    Why pay for it when you can walk down the street and get it for free?

    Pretty much. Someone actually put my mates 106 Quiksilver windows in and stole his headrests. HEADRESTS! Not even head unit (which was extremely expensive back then [one of the original mp3 playing ones]). I can only imagine they wanted a matching set for the rear seats to their own.
