ditto SWFLf10 ... I've never had any issues either. Whatever the shipping costs that were listed on the site is what I paid...and the mirrors show up in your mail box/doorstep (or wherever you have the item shipped to).

That's good to hear. So you just order it and either it shows up on the doorstep or someone lets you know about red tape?

Update: new mirrors installed.

Went to Ebay and ordered a pair of mirrors from a seller in Latvia, they arrived in right about a week with no fuss or mention of customs etc., as y'all predicted.

Didn't have anything plastic or wood that was both slim enough to get behind the mirrors and strong enough to pry with, so ended up using a screwdriver since the edge one pries against is plastic. Didn't have to pry too hard so easy on the nerves, but figured it wouldn't be a problem if I damaged them on the way out anyway . The electrical connection was no problem, I handled the new mirrors with a soft cloth to prevent smudges, and they popped in with surprisingly light pressure, so pretty seamless swapout.

One minor annoyance is that I bought these mirrors vs others available based on close examination of the photos for condition and age, and then the mirrors that arrived were not the ones in the listing! Good condition, etc., but I wanted the newest/cleanest ones possible for longevity concerns (since the reason I did this is one of my mirrors going bad). So... I may leave a mention in the seller's reviews, or I may just shrug it off. Not like I'm going to demand a refund or some silliness ya know.

Anyway, some pics bc we all love pics:

Welcome to the wide angle club!

Glad everything went smoothly from the transaction to the install.
