How much is a car mirror?

My car mirror got damaged. I was parking on the street and forgot to push my mirror in and someone clipped it. No clue who did it, but I figure it’s such small damage that if it’s affordable (under $500), I’d rather not file a claim.

Answer
I’m sorry to hear that someone hit your car while it was parked. However, when it comes to getting a side mirror replaced, it’s going to depend on if you go to the manufacturer or a third-party.
To have a professional repair your mirror can cost between $139 and $328. This will save you a lot of headaches.
Generally, third-party or unofficial mirrors are cheaper than the official manufacturer parts made specifically for your car. Because of this, there’s a pretty big difference in price. Side mirrors can range from $35 to $90.
