side mirrors stolen in less than a minute

my car was sitting in front of my house. in the poring rain on the camera in front of my house you can see someone walk straight up to my window and start yanking and went straight for the driver side right after and kept moving. since the camera is being distorted from the rain you cant really make out a face. i called 2 dealers and they both have to order the mirrors and they're expensive. its just the glass.
any ideas where i can get this done besides a stealership?

I feel you pain. Same thing happened to me. Had my passenger side mirror stolen. Went to back out of my driveway and looked over and nothing there. Was taken clean off the car no sign of any other damage or struggle. Anyway, had to have everthing relpaced including the motors. Takes about 4-5 days to get the parts and then they have to paint the mirror cap. If you put the carbon fiber caps on maybe able to get it a little sooner.

I think it was around 1200 in total parts and labor from the stealership.

I live in queens somone def followed me home and then came back at night and took them!!!! i paid 350 per glass because they auto dim!!! it easy to install yourself....

Damn, didn't even know this happens. Guess I'll start putting mouse traps around the mirrors

So SORRY to hear about your unforunate loss. I had a similar situation happen to me about 15 years ago on my first ever new car,which happened to be an acura integra GSR, i had the car for less then one week, when I parked out in front of my house on thanksgiving night. Woke up the next morning just to admire my ride did a walk around and BAM!!! both my head lights had been stolen as well as my After market fog lights...
I know how it feels dude, total feeling of being violated.
You work you A$$ for what you have and then some A-hole comes and just wrecks it.
Good luck and sorry for the rant.

Makes me thin of this...

Lance: Still got your Malibu?
Vincent: Aw, man. You know what some fucker did the other day?
Lance: What?
Vincent: Fucking keyed it.
Lance: Oh, man, that's fucked up.
Vincent: Tell me about it. I had it in storage for three years, it was out five days and some dickless piece of shit fucked with it.
Lance: They should be fucking killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.
Vincent: Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that asshole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it.
Lance: What a fucker!
Vincent: What's more chicken shit than fucking with a man's automobile? I mean, don't fuck with another man's vehicle.
Lance: You don't do it.
Vincent: It's just against the rules.

check the auto repair shops in the area. they could probably "sell" you back your own mirrors...
