Last Sunday a crazy AH cab driver while overtaking me on a small road swiped my right mirror and i ended by losing the blue cover of the mirror.
As soon as he swiped my mirror the blue plastic covering mirror was chipped off. The mirror is OK and functioning properly with remote tilting.
Drove to the Hyundai service center and i was shocked to hear that the entire right side mirror unite has to be replaced
and it costs Rs:4500. I was under an impression that i need only the chipped of plastic cover.
To make the situation worst i was told that the mirrors are only available in black colour and they need to be repainted blue and it costs extra Rs650 for painting. Also since its a new car the service center did not had them and it takes 3 days to order them from Chennai.
I am really confused when this is an easy fix why would any one want to change an entire unit?
