Hi all, please don't be calling me cheap or tight here, but my right hand wing mirror glass is smashed, i tried the self adhesive 'universal' stuff that you cut to size, but it totally distorts the view.

I don't want to pay £120 for the glass, or £200 for an entire second hand mirror in the wrong colour (electric, heated, folding), so my question is:

What similar mirror glass can i pick up for £10-£20, even if its slightly too small and not heated? Anything will do, thr rx400h mirror looks close, but even a mondeo or astra miror glass is fine, provided its not too big, and will fit inside the recess?

cheers guys/girls!

The mirror glass in the GS450H is a LCD glass that dims the glass at night to reduce headlamp glare from following cars. This feature would be lost if standard mirror glass is fitted.

I had my mirror smashed by another driver and the only sensible option was a used one from ebay . Lexus offered me the glass only for about £350 .

At £350 I would do without the dimming!

Same issue here. I'm looking for the outer shell of the drivers side wing mirror for a 2009 GS450h Sport. If anyone has one or a link to a seller please post or pm me.

Thanks!

I got this heated replacement glass from eBay for my RX300. Ok, it doesn't dim like the original Lexus one but I don't like the dimming feature anyway; it's good for the internal rear view mirror but not for the sides. This replacement cost £15.49, so it may be worth looking if the same trader has one for your GS450h.
