    Don't bother trying to find vitz replacement side mirrors. Just go to any Toyota showroom and purchase the side mirrors of the new Corolla. They are an exact fit and shape.

    This is mostly a Karachi phenomenon as side mirrors, wiper base nut covers and Honda City radio antennas are widely stolen. Here in Rawalpindi I have noticed that most cars have all the three items intact. Apparently, car makers have designed cars for places where there are less common thieves and not designed them for big cities in Pakistan.

    I hope you can get new replacement mirrors and my advice would be to park the car in a well lit and busy area to deter such thieves.

    motor vehicular problems are very unique in Pakistan.

    1 - every car should be "patharr mazboot" - meaning if they hit a pole the pole should bend away
    2 - every car should do atleast 30 km/lit
    3 - every car should drive softer than a fresh citroen DS
    4 - every spare part should be available for Rs 100/- (if this were the case - side mirror thefts wont happen so much)
    5 - It should have ever healing jenyan paint and come with a little tin of ultimate, unicorn, cosmic, galaxy, rare, gleaming, supershine wax.
    6 - The engine should have no problems running on API SA grade oil (1930s spec)


    point 4 is quite important I beleive.
