Cracked Right Mirror Cover

Just picked up an '08 X3 and after i got it home I noticed that the right mirror cover was cracked. How could I have missed that! What do you guys think is the most cost effective way to replace this? Should I scour the junkyards or order the cover and have it painted? Any other suggestions? I'm in southern CA (Irvine) so if you know of good local deals please let me know.

I would hold tight for a real issue. People sell cars before they need money spent on them. You may find you need to do a 100k mile service, change the transfer box fluid, have the gearbox ECU updated, fix a heated seat issue, change all the tyres or replace the monroof.

But yeah, set up saved search on ebay and let it email you daily to see if you can scoop one up.

Good idea to set up an Ebay search. I'll definitely do that. Unfortunately, most people seem to be selling the whole mirror unit not just the plastic cover.
