Alfa 159 cracked wing mirror

I managed to chip my driver side wing mirror at a jet wash! (I need to be more careful) It now has two hairline cracks in it and a chip.

My questions are

What do I need to replace it, just replacement glass or glass and backing plate.

Is the glass and backing plate easy to fit myself as Alfa Cardiff are quoting 25 for fitting and 21 for just the glass as they say that is all is needed. Halfords sell replacement glass but this must be stuck over the existing glass- not a great solution.

That's quite cheap for the glass. Is that heated too? As for fitting it's quite straightforward but easily broken if it's your first time. At least if they break it they pay for a new one!!
