Debris on the freeway took out my driver side mirror. The dealer wants $474 +tax, which is ridiculous, when they cost $80 online unpainted ...
My question is; "does anyone know were is a good place to buy them, or know if I should be buying the Japan version or the US version ?"
I'm also assuming I need the 2012 gas version ...
Any help will be well appreciated.

I believe the mirrors are one of the items that are different on the EV model. They are smaller for aerodynamics. If you get an ICE mirror it will be different than the right side.

Did it take out EVERYTHING? I had the passenger side mirror bust out hitting debris on the freeway. It knocked out the cover and the side marker unit.

It was like $71 for both pieces from Hammer. But nothing else was damaged.

Hammer Toyota.. it's a dealership right near me.. luckily the motor and drive gears were not damaged...

Go to your local Toyota dealer and talk to the parts dept. ;)

They'll hook you up!

Will do that ...
When I went to Toyota of El Cajon, they just asked for my VIN, and told me it's $474, plus tax ...
I need to go back, and maybe tell him, if I have other options .. everything else is in tact, and motor works too ..
Thanks for the heads up .

When pulling out of the garage, Driver side mirror got damaged as shown in the attachment. The mirror is broken and black casing is also broken, but the back housing and light are intact. Can any one suggest me what parts i need to fix.Image

As Jason A mentioned you can buy the parts separately, and the cover as well, and it is color match to vehicle paint.
Just go to Toyota dealer, and have them only order parts you need.
I ordered the mirror, and the painted cover, and t cost me around $150, which was way better that the $500 to get the whole assembly ...
