Red face Mirror Mirror mirror Driver Side Wing Mirror R25s Broken

Hi all,
Its my 1st post in this section.
What happened today, someone jealous chav broke my driver side wing mirror.
Mirror was tough. They used force so much that the metal thingy inside the mirror broke and also, the paint got scratched.

Car is now sitting on the drive. Please help me drive again.
Is there any place I can get the metal thingy.

Its electric mirror from R25 S3 impression.
Very bad impression those ******* chavs left.........
Should I go thru' Insurace? would it result in Rise in Premiums?
Or you would point me to the scrappy.

I've got a spare manual driver side sitting in my boot.. never been used, it's just just incase of things like this happening. Try ebay again, there is a shop on there that sells them for about 30 brand new.

I had manual mirrors; some kind soles walked down the street i was parked in and kicked off peoples mirrors including mine, however they also kick the mirror down the passenger door and scratched the paint; i've fixed it and took the opertunity to upgrade to electric mirrors; however i had to have both drivers and passengers to make a complete ciruit.

Depends on your insurance; i think direct line now dont ask you to pay your excess if it was criminal damage, you'll have to ask your company though, a new mirror will cost you about 120; off ebay a single mirror maybe 30. I found most breakers yards didnt have many 25/ZR mirrors as they broke when being brought in...
