"Cloudy" Driver Side Rear-View Mirror
I recently had my car inspected by Lexus for a state vehicle inspection (mandatory). This inspection came within a few days and just one trip of the inspection I had by the Lexus dealership in the state I bought the car from. At the first inspection, they didn't identify anything wrong with the vehicle. At the second inspection they said the driver side rear-view mirror was "cloudy" and needed to be replaced to pass inspection. They said it was covered under warranty so I didn't care too much. I get the bill today and again it is covered under warranty, but it was over $500 for just the mirror -- not the entire assembly. Is this really the price?
I know, I know, what should I care since I didn't have to pay, but it just seems wasteful. I can't tell the difference between this mirror and the "cloudy" mirror and I certainly think trying something like glass/mirror polish on the mirror before spending $500+ would be warranted.
What do you guys think?
