    Do you think garages in Italy have a stock room full of wing mirrors! Had mine bashed off yesterday Grrrrrrr. So got to find a local fiat dealer to get one fitted. However when it happened I went back up the road to see what was left of the debri and the roadside was full of different parts of all makes of wing mirrors.

    If you are right hand drive do not buy one for left hand drive

    That will hurt.

    I got one, full electric of ebay for 60-odd pounds. Not easy to fit. But the interesting thing was it was identical to the FIAT original, same moulding marks yet a pattern part.

    So maybe look at auto spares shops.

    You were lucky it was only your wing mirror, Italian drivers are pigs
