I have recently moved house and the new area isn't quite as nice as my previous address so I decided to lease a garage.

On the first attempt of queezing my precious ZR into the garage I scratched my drivers side wing mirror. It scratched all the way thru to paint work to the black plastic... DOH!

Don't think a touch up stick will do the job so looks like new wing mirror is in order.

i had a wing mirror kicked off my ZR by some little tosser which left scratches all the way though the paint on the mirror colour insert. You will probably find that your dealer will find a new insert to clip onto the mirror, which should make the cost slightly less painfull:p

Mirror Hell

You are not alone.

My ZS drivers mirror was wrenched off in december, a month after I bought it. It was a nightmare driving without it.

A month ago some oik put his jealous boot into the rear panel and passenger door. The passenger mirror is servicable but rocked forward and back instead of the steadfast design.

It took two weeks to get two replacement mirrors due to the parts shortage. I decided to change the shells [coloured backs] to be red so that they would compliment the interior colour scheme and allow me to livery my antracite toy like the WSR racers.

Look out for some red and anthracite pictures of my ZS next week.

Mostyn ;)

I have ordered the touch up stick but it seems there is a shortage....... No change there..... So I have it on back order.

Didn't realise that you could get an outer shell for the wing mirror so I may give this a try if the touch up stick is rubbish.

Cheers all......

Ended up buying the outer shell for wing mirror... Cost was £238

Oh yeah forgot to mention £212 of that was for new side skirts.... I couldn't resist the temptation to modify!

18"s and induction kit all on the way also.....

I had the passengers side door mirror replaced a few weeks ago - misjudged something and cracked the shell, broke the glass and generally messed it up.

All sorted now, not cheap but a good job by my dealer.
