Broken Outside Mirror - Need One

Hello all! I just bought a 2003 BMW 745i with 101,000 miles yesterday, and the only thing externally that I've found wrong so far is that the passenger mirror was broken off. I have the old mirror, but I'm going to need a new one. I did a quick search on eBay and found some for over $500 ! I could go that route and pay that price (it's better than $1,400 at the Dealer), but I would rather not just for a mirror. I also need a spare for the car............or a set of tires and rims because the tires could use replacing. What do you guys recommend doing, where to get one, etc.? I can try to get some pictures, but no promises as I would have to rely on someone else because I am currently away from it.

Loving the forum so far!

The ones on eBay are over $500 for a used one. Is that a fair price. I feel like I should be able to find one much cheaper.

Well......I figured someone on here or another forum might have one for sale or be parting out a car.

Or maybe I could find a salvage place nearby that would have one?

that's 99% of the ebay sellers. That will be the going prices for it/them.
You might have a better chance getting the glass and those are going for 175 to 300 dollars.

Sounds good guys. I'm going to talk with my newly acquired BMW mechanic and see what he recommends (eBay or through someone he knows). Doesn't really matter because I need to get it fixed. If I find a mirror and need a different color cover, I'll let ya know!

More posts/questions to come!
