Scratched side mirror of another car, need advice *resolved*
Do you guys think the dealership would go along with it if she said she wants to replace the entire mirror rather than just repair the scratches? If yes, then what do you guys think a ballpark figure would be? Assuming we opt to go through insurance, would the insurance companies even go along with replacing the entire mirror in this case? Thanks for all advice.
EDIT: added a pic (sorry didn't take a better pic)
EDIT 2: Also, while I hope that the owner of the MB is an honest person and would reciprocate, but you never know. How can we protect ourselves from being liable for additional damages that were not part of the accident? What if the owner decides to claim that we damaged other parts of the car, not just the side mirror housing?
EDIT 3: The MB owner got back with the quote from an authorized MB repair centre and they are just going to buff out scratch on the housing and replace the turn signal lamp. Part and materials is $130 and labor is $320, for a total of ~$450. I think we got pretty lucky, so I'm really happy about it. Thanks to all who replied.
