Re: Side View Mirror Cost?
Its good to see that you are conscious about engine life and other mechanicals too,I too own a Hyundai i10 asta and mine is a may 2009.
I too have came across similar looking incidents twice but mine were quite serious,first was when my i10 was bruished by a roadways bus coming from behind me.Due to which I lost my front left door and my ORVM and front fender.In the whole case I faced a good loss but still I can remember that my car's ORVM costed me about 1450 that time about 8 months back.
Second was when I made my Laura brush up a stationary truck in an attempt to touch the top speed for making a video,in that incident I paid 11,700 for just an ORVM.So you are still very lucky for paying just 300.
