    I'm retarded

    omg, I wasn't thinking...backing out from the gym. I didn't pay attention. Bad omen already, as I was backing out with the parking brake on. So I looked at my RPM like a dumb*** and not paying attention to my mirrors. And I broke off my driver side mirror. OUCH!!! Now I guess my $200 credit at the dealership will go towards that. does anyone know how much they run at the dealer? I have a 2 week old 2010 WRX by the way

    Don't know the price but don't feel too bad, accidents happen all the time.

    I'm sure there's more than the three of us that have hit something or other at one time or another. Part of life. If nobody's hurt, let it go.

    thanks everyone for consoling me. I'll go first thing in morning to dealership to fix it, so I can forget about it and not be a eye sore.

    Sounds like a mirror was pretty minor compared to some of the other stuff here...

    As others have said, accidents happen.

    Was there only damage to your vehicle? If so, at least you don't have to pay for any more damage

    No thank goodness its only the housing. I checked this morning and there is no paint damage to the car. So it is minor. The dealer said the complete mirror would be about $200 but it has to be ordered and eta may be 1-2 weeks.

    A side mirror ain't nothing to worry about... way back when I had my old 94 camaro z28 I was lazy about putting on my snow tires and I was on the freeway and it started snowing all crazy so what did my dumbass do? I downshifted from 6th to 4th and gave it some gas theb the rear end slid out and I spun around 4 times and hit the median totaling my baby... I still to this day have not forgave myself...
