Need to replace driver's side mirror glass with auto dim.

So far this is the used version is the cheapest option I have found $80 https://www.ebay.com/itm/00-04-Merce...1/183297660320
I just wanted to see if anyone has any alternative options before I pull the trigger. The glass is $280 new.

My poor baby is 16 now, needs a new head gasket and belt tensioner assembly. The 3 time replaced tail lamp is on the fritz now and more than likely needs replacing. Needless to say, she is on her final run and I am hoping to replace her next year. It doesn't make sense to repair her due to how low she is worth in $ and now has 140K miles. I can't do it this year because I just got married in January and still paying off the ring / wedding.

I did see it new at parts geek for $200 but that was still a little pricey... https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/20...ror_glass.html

Does anyone have a coupon for parts geek?

I found a company in the US that repairs them - at least the interior one. Sorry I'm mobile ATM so can't search for you.
