    Take it to the dealer and express your admiration to them. They need to fix this, it's a safety issue and in general cars should be sold without parts falling off them these days.

    'specially on a NEW car. This is a warranty issue, no doubt! Or did you already mod it?!
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    As long as you didn't hang fuzzy dice from the mirror it should be covered.

    Also where is this screw? It is an adhesive. You mean the mirror came off with the adhesive

    That's what I was wondering...there's no screw on the base of the mirror. Unless it is something that helps connect the swivel point

    Just curious, how much of a discount did you get with the snapshot or does the discount only apply after having the snapshot for some period of time.

    I see they do a free trial of it to let you see how much you can save with it.. So tempting to "try" it out, go do some auto-x events, hit up the 1/4 mile track, etc. Then take it back to them and ask how much you'll same

    my wife has 1 year old license mine is for 7 y old. i bought her mazda 3 and were quoted for 1400+ for 6 months by geico statefarm and some others. i decided to go with progressive for 1222/6m they offre me snapshot. after 30 days the send me 300.00 back and gave me 26% discount. when i added my wrx i was quated for around the same.
    but now nextmonth at renew i will pay $1248/6m for both. i live in miami and rates r very high.
    but driving with snapshot is pain slow and you cant break hard.
    30 days for discount and almost 3 month in the car.

    I have Progressive, and was going to try the Snapshot. I just never had a chance to put it in cause I was logging with the OBDII port at the time, so it just didn't make sense.

    I did clarify that it can ONLY HELP your rates...it can in NO way harm your rates or cause them to increase. The only downfall is, you have to keep it plugged in for about a month+ straight. It logs how often you drive, how you accelerate and how hard you hit the brakes (g-forces actually) and sends that info back. It's not actually a "trial" you have to pay for...you just either use it and try and get a discount applied from it, or you don't. Costs nothing extra.

    I believe you have the optional rear view mirror (Either auto dimming or HomeLink and auto dimming). That is the part of the installation kit for the optional mirror (Part No: H501SSA040). I stripped mine as well installing my HomeLink Mirror. That piece is made of a really soft metal so the dealer has to be careful not to over tighten the screws when installing. That part can be bought separately.

    Since your car is new I would take it back to the dealer and they should fix/replace it for free.
