Exclamation Broke my Mirrior Going thru Horses

So I had to wake up much earlier than normal today, as I was driving thru some horses i caught my Mirrior on one of them. The whole fixture is fine, but the glass shattered. Does anyone know where I could buy some replacment glass for not too expensive? I checked ebay for the whole fixture, and there were none.

Errr.. If you were driving THROUGH some horses i would say that a shattered mirror ain't much to talk about..

What happened to the horse?

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!

hahaha, sorry must be a St. Louis term.... Horses as in the large metal objects that you have to weave in between, used to slow you down in neighborhoods. Not the Animal. I just need to know where I can get a replacment mirror. Or if anyone here has the whole assembly they would like to sell me.
Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

- I can't say I have ever seen anything like what you are describing. We have "speed bumps" around these parts.

Well basically im sure you guys know what horses are for like a wood shop, where you lay your wood on two horses to cut, Am i making any sense? Well it's basically that, but there metal and usually painted white. Our neighborhood likes to put them down to slow the traffic down because there are always kids playing. But to continue my question, does anyone know where i could get a used whole unit or just a replacment mirror?

(i'll try to get a picture to show you guys what im talking about)

Oh and we also have speed bumps, hate those too.

Very often Mercedes carries over certain components from series to series, if your mirror is the same as the ones on the 123 Series, I have a couple of those replacement glasses.
