Smile 2004 S 600 owner

Love this car, luckily I bought an extended warantee, car just had $ 6500 work done a Mercedes dealer for ABC. Crazy.
And the today, when I got my car back after 2 weeks of driving a loaner, While pulling out of the garage my left side mirror hit a car lift post for overhead car storage(Porsche!), and split in the lower half section. Everything thankfully wiorks, but I was weighing repair options a) Have dealer do work, b)buy a replacement part, hopefully cheap, and the is this a DYI project?, or c) use some glue, and duct tape to keep up the pressure, and then remove duct tape and paint and patch and feather in repair to make the crack mostly disappear.
Welcome all input!

Welcome to the forum. I would take the 600 into a shop that can make the mirror look like new. After all you're driving an S600, make it look sharp and not second class with tape and glue.
