Wing Mirror Cover/Rare Colour

Thanks to a chav in a Corsa a few months back my car is missing the drivers side wing mirror cover, now my plan has been to wait until I see someone breaking a dark green 147 and snap it up, problem is dark green appears to be the most rare colour out there so it could be a long wait.

So what are my options? Due to where I live spraying one green DIY-style is going to be difficult and will most likely end with an awful finish, so is it possible to get a new one? If so what sort of price am I looking at? Failing that does anybody know of a dark green 147 currently being broken up?

Thanks in advance.

I'm fearful, I'm fearful, I'm fearful, of flying and flying is fearful of me.

A new mirror (or mirror cover) will come "prep'd for paint", so you will still need to get it painted in the right colour.
Careful though as there are are basic black ones that are not prep'd for paint.
(the black mirrors are not painted)

something like this :

or go the satin finish, I believe available as separate item from your friendly local stealer.. ( well named they quoted me £ 126.11 for a new gear Knob today ). Hope the satin finish is a tad cheaper.
