Stolen day after Eid. Parked my car in Saddar to meet relatives. When I returned I found the glass on the right mirror of my car missing. There was something else also missing, a note by the theif saying “Khuda aap ko aisi hazaron eidain naseeb karay”.

I am glad there was no such note, though.

    I installed hard metal wire attached to the mirror, and havent lost a mirror ever since. Either the mirror gets broken or never gets off.

    Agar ye shisha mera na ho saka, to tere bhi nahi ho ga.

    HONDAS’ are very common victims of Side mirror & rear quarter glass. :)

    lesson for everyone every car user,

    Never – Never leave coins visible from outside let alone the glasses / laptop bags / stuffed shoping bags, sound system face plates etc.

    @ some

    The orginal “Mirror PLATE” for Honda SHITTY & SHEWIK costs Over 2000 ~ 7500 from Parts shop. Same ‘Stolen’ Genuine costs 400 – 3000 from Magazine LANE behind plaza market. in Karachi, Sultan ka Koh in Pindi, Shoba Bazar in Pshwer, and Bilal Gunj in Lawhore

    Depending upon what outfit is asking in what manner.

    The plate slips in any pocket without a trace, take less then 5 seconds to flip detach and walkaway, where as the whole mirror assembly with broken wires dangling invites attention and consumes over 2 minutes and some wrestling skill.

    Alam, I dont think that the mirrors are expensive. My guess is that they sell the stolen mirrors to people standing near Plaza probably for Rs.50-100. Car owners can buy similar (stolen) mirrors from Plaza for Rs.150-300.

    These mirror just pop out when pressure is applied from the sides. To remove the whole package, one would need a bit more time and some tools.

    It is not about the money cost.

    It is about the inconvenience, the heart ache, sense of insecurity and of being violated which is incalculable.

    As for the thieves, well being a part of this nation, small minds will think small things, hence only the mirrors are stolen.
