    ... after it was hit by an unknown motorist.
    $2,767.34!! Wtf? lol

    I couldn’t f’ing believe it. They said the entire door will have to be replaced because of the damage done where the mirror is mounted.

    While it won’t cost me more than my $250 deductible, I wasn’t expecting that. I also wasn’t expecting it to take 3 days to repair.

    Gotta love these unexpected surprises life sometimes throws our way. :)

    Make sure the door shuts good, the mirror works and the color matches. Good your ins will cover the loaner.

    That sounds ridiculous but my insurance was charged $1100 when my friend opened the passenger door on a very windy day and banged the car door next to me. I was honest and told the waitress what had happened and ask the the other people who's car it was. I mean you could barely see the dent. So a mirrror for $2700? Sure why not?

    I could see the damage they were talking about. They also took several pics and sent them to my ins. company.

    I’m confident the repairs will be done right and in a timely manner. I chose this particular shop because of their high ratings. My ins. rep said they’ll cover the cost including a rental. :)

    That is not possible.

    The average cost of a side view mirror is about $450
