  • have i been ripped off?

    hi guys, been after some wing mirror covers for ages and finally decided to bite the bullet and buy some offof ebay for £108

    please see the link i bought them off

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/GENUINE-VAUXHA...item3367fbfb31

    i have now found out they are just stick on covers and not a direct replacement?

    surely this isnt right for this price??

    i was expecting to change the whole thng??

    if you see the description it says nothing about a 'stick on' cover

    please advise guys and girls before i contact the seller with a stinking email

    thanks

        so are they just stickers cut to the shape of the wing mirror? either way id say you were ripped off. you could have got genuine burg mirrow covers for that price.

        i got carbon wrapped mirror covers off ebay for £40 and im pretty pleased with them

          That's the chance you take with buying stuff from ebay, I can not see anything wrong with the advert.

          You have genuine VX parts, and only just cheaper than the link I posted.

                the burg wingmirrors are just a normal plastic cover (the bit thats painted on all other astras) with a stick on glossy carbon effect cover
                i know as i pulled one of mine off when snapped some clips off the plastic bit
                you were not really ripped off as they have an rrp of £66.40 each at the dealers
                the cheapest i found one when looking was £55 from mattbibbs
                i ened up pulling the carbon bit off then sticking it onto a black wingmirror cover i got off ebay for £15

                obviousley you didnt know what you were buying
                but you got a genuine part for a reasonable price i'd say (well compare to rrp anyway)
                hope that puts your mind at rest a bit

                  What he said^^^^

                  The genuine Burg one's are merely stuck on top of the ordinary mirror - the same as the carbon B pillar trim is stuck on top of the std VXR one and the door trims on the inside are stuck on top of the std VXR door one's

                  Sorry you feel conned but you haven't been in all honesty

                      If you get some black covers from a breakers - you can plonk these on top and there you have it exactly like the Burg one (if you can find some for £15 as above then ideal)

                          look pretty much same as mine. I prefer the matt look to the gloss look of the burg mirrors.
