    Angry Vitz 08 Retractable Side Mirrors Stolen

    Salam Pakwheelers !

    Its been 8 days since I've bought my Vitz 2008 fully loaded and today at around 3 : 30 - 5: 00 pm when I returned from my tuition class I was shocked to see that someone had stolen the right side mirror of my car

    At first I thought this was someone else's car caus but when looked at the cars interior I realized that this was my car. I still cannot believe this happened caus I had parked my car on the main road, bilkul right par traffic signal tha. I mean had ho gaye, and i used to think sirf andheri galiyon se side mirrors chori hotay hain :/

    So could anyone suggest me as to where I could get used/new white retractable right side mirror for the facelift ? Also if i dont want to install the retractable ones and go for the simple ones of any other make to cut down on cost which ones should i go for ?

    - All suggestions welcomed !

    Unfortunately MY vitz's 2010 model mirror stolen few days back.

    Is there any solution to fix this issue. I saw the broken metal part under the base. My base was not broken instead the inner metal round piece is broken off.

    Is there any desi method to install some hard metal fixture so that ic ant be broken off.

    Sorry for your loss my Vitz 2008 side mirrors were also stolen few days back. Get Corolla Side mirrors as they are non retractable and look almost same as Vitz original with indicator lights. Theives are not much fond of Corolla Side mirrors and they are cheap, got a pair for 5500/- whearas original vitz original is for 15000/- Kabuli not new. A juggad would be to to weld the side mirror with the holder so that it does not fold and become useless for the theif.

    Mine also got stolen last week in Peshawar, got hold of inside mirrors only pair for 3000/- Kabuli one.
    Just add elfy on the clips and fix it. This totka was shared by the shopkeeper from where i got the mirrors. According to him who ever steel these mirrors, don't break it. as these are of no use to him, if broken.

    My car's mirrors were folded and car was covered and it was stolen. But corolla's and Vitz mirror looks same and i think thief wont spend much time in identifying thats its original or not. He may break it away also. I searched the market for corolla china made mirror but there is only Thailand made and they are in Rs5800 for a pair. If we fix with elfy then i think corolla mirrors are best.

    can any one guide how to check the genuine non-repaired mirror with repaired one, if we go to buy a kabli one.

    Theives are expert in what is Gold and what is Copper. They know if these are retractable or non retractable. I got my self a pair for 5.5k and i think they are best to serve the purpose
