My local BMW dealer has just quoted me ?268 for a replacement wing mirror glass for my 1997 BMW. Still under shock! (and I wanted to buy two) :shock:

Try $A455 for a replacement key for an Audi A3, programmed from the VIN by Audi (just a normal key, no electronics). Or $A15 from my local locksmith

I suggest you do likewise and visit your local glass merchant

And that's why I hate and have no interest in modern cars.

If you take the car to the local BMW dealer they will fit them as well....only ?120 an hour labour!!

I wonder what the lads who do the work get paid?
