Please Help! Got wing mirror covers knicked!!!

Hey fellas,

Im sorry to announce that last Tuesday morning I found out that my mini's wing mirror cap covers were stolen overnight. I am trying to find these on the internet but it seems that I can only find "covers", this is, what is fitted over the original cap and unfortunately I need both cap and cover and hopefully all in one... Do you have any ideas where can I get them??

Ive got a r50 mini one diesel.

Cheers a lot!

Anti theft screws are for the whole mirror unit to the door, they wont stop the caps being taken, the only way to do that is to garage your car overnight, dont frequent dodgy areas or move to a better area Im afraid, thats life.
