It was replaced under warranty. If I can find a reasonably priced mirror, I will replace it - new ones are $800 (mirror and glass).

At over 14k it should be replaced even if it's over $800, just saying. On a forum like this you're going to get nothing but perfectionists as most are enthusiasts who want their car to be absolutely perfect, especially at such a $premium$
