Cool 1997 s 500 mirrors and replacements

hey guys, both mirrors from my 1997 s 500 have been stolen twice. Cheapest price I found so far from junkyard is $800 and this time I am trying to find out if the E series or any other mirrors will fit on the S series.
Does anyone have any experience with the same....my car has been marked for mirrors..

Remind me not to park in your neighborhood.

Mirrors pop up on eBay with relative frequency.

Where do you live? Are mirror assemblies used as currency there? Jeez...I expect if you Goggle "mercedes dismantlers" or some such like that you'll find some yards where you can get mirrors for less than you paid the first time. You may have to get them painted unless you get lucky and find a pair on a car the same color as yours.

Good luck.

Mirrors from other cars don't fit.

Sounds like you need to just pay the deductable and have the insurance company fix it.

the whole mirror was stolen. The 1997 s 500 mirrors are sought after ...difficult to find in Jankyard and $$$$ brand new. Someone told me that the E series can fit on the S, ...I though I ask.
