    wing mirror help?

    Hi,

    Well today i had my wing mirror smashed by a on coming car that failed to stop and give way (parked car on there side of the road) ....

    My drivers side mirror was totally smashed in the accident. I pulled over and looked in my rear view mirror for the other driver to do the same......BUT no they carried on and did not stop, so i spun my car around and followed them flashing lights and beeping horn for them to pull over,,,,,,,,,,,,1 mile + they get the message and pull over.


    On approach to the car i saw that it was a old lady on her own so i had to calm myself down a bit as to not put her into a cardiac state and die on me!

    I could see that she was shaken by what had happened and informed her she had just come head on at me on my side of the road and damaged my wing mirror,,,her reply was it was't me?????????? I said look at your wing mirror????

    You have just left the scene of a accident i have passengers in my car to witness it!

    She then said don't call the police i will pay you for the damage.....I said to be fair 20 should cover it!

    (as guilty as i felt taking the money from her)

    But now i cannot find a wing mirror for 20 anywhere?????...

    I got the stick on mirror from Halfords but that don't fit?

    Anyone point me in the right direction.


    Thanks

    I have a early E46 1999, And i think i have E36 wing mirrors on as today i was at my wits end finding replacement glass that fits

    I found that E36 mirror glass fits?...is it possible on the change of year from factory they stuck E36 wing mirrors on my E46?

    I cannot tell the difference??
