Advice needed - Stole mirror caps and mirrors

Advice needed - Stole mirror caps and mirrors
Hi all,

Not sure if anyone can offer some advice or leads on parts.. Long story short our F30 LCI 318i's mirror caps and mirrors were stolen off the car this morning... Thumbdown

Obviously Insurance claim will be looked at, but can I get parts from Breakers/etc and does the LCI and pre LCI have the same mirrors.. Any leads?

Interesting day this has been..

Thanks!!

RE: Advice needed - Stole mirror caps and mirrors
I bought a new cap and support from BMW and sent them for paint this morning.

excess was to much, repair was cheaper..

Eish, sorry to hear buddy, give Bavarian Breakers in Wynberg a call on 0832586858, the mirror glass is the same on 1,3,4,6 series the last time I checked Thumbs

RE: Advice needed - Stole mirror caps and mirrors
Thanks much for the advice. Will contact and check pricing. Seems like Insurance want a big excess.. As expected!

Appreciate guys will check out options! Thumbs

Just checked the electronics the mechanisms all move etc so does not look like the casings are broken at least!!

Keep your boot locked, especially on older cars that need a key to lock the boot. My bros spare wheel got stolen out of the boot. The car was locked but he forgot to manually lock the boot. Unbelievable. dunno anymore

I saw a pic where they stripped the front end of a Golf 7R in a parking lot - bumper, headlights and grille
