My car had a run-in with a concrete pillar (note the passive voice), and after driving it to a nearby shop, the estimate for fixing it was $400.
“That seems high,” said my wife. And indeed it was! A bing search, brought up a NextTag comparison page, which brought us to Auto Mirror Express. A couple days later, a nice remanufactured mirror arrived by FedEx, and then we took it over to Bellevue Collission Care for painting it and then attaching it.
Total cost: $150, for parts, paint, and labor.
Can’t complain about that!
