    Angry Vitz side mirror query

    Hello All,
    I'm using Vitz 06 as daily runner... and im facing a problem now. My side mirrors, (retract) have been stolen/broken 4 times... its really becoming a nuisance in Karachi... I just got a pair installed last month for 9K... and about a week after that, one of the mirrors was AGAIN broken.. while the car was parked outside a restaurant at zamzama... and the other mirror has been left loose..

    So this remaining mirror is making weird noises.. when the car is running.. sortof squeaky sounds. Can anyone recommend me some mirrors which are not stolen so much. What about Xli/Gli mirrors?? they are the same shape but without retract option.. will that be a good decision?

    Regards

    get the non powered ones this time, The oness that come with B package.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I guess its due to high resale or somehting.. or because of the retract option!

    Bro XLI or GLI ones are amlost same... but they are not powered and if u buy them from Toyota they will cost you more... I got one for my GLi few months back for almost around 5,700... they sell cover, mirror and then matching paint, labour cost all separate...

    Get USED mirrors (3000 each max). tariq road or plaza

    And better yet, instead of plastic mount, get a metal one.. i did that too, guy painted it black so no difference but harder to break by theives!

    Metal brackets wont cost more than 250/

    go for altis mirrors
    or go for vitz original side mirrors but those with metal base so that they aren't taken off
    this is what a friend did to his 2008 vitz after his car's side mirrors were stolen

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    The metal plates... they would only protect the base (connecting door to mirror) .. still the actual mirror could be broken off.. right?

    The idea behind the metal plates is that the thief will not be able to take the metal plates and won't be able to sell the mirrors off for a very good price without the plates. Or he may move on to another car because of the metal plates.

    The mechanic that I go to installed mirrors from a Cultus in someone's Vitz. The owner lives on a busy street in Saddar and was going through the same dilemma as you, hence the mechanic got him Cultus mirrors which aren't that expensie I think.

    Most people install Alto's side mirrors on their Vitz and Passo
    Get the metal base for fitting them or get manual mirrors installed
    Vitz side mirrors are easy money and sold from one hand to another
