It's a great price for a great tool.

It usually cost in the price range to 60-$70.

 If you want something more advanced I would say go for a blue driver.

 @CountValentine am I wasting my money on one of these or should I go for the blue driver?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

i have a smashed mirror on a 15 passenger van that i need to fix.

i was wondering if changing the mirror is something i might be able to do alone.

if yes is there anywhere online to order car parts, like a replacement mirror? (of course the cheaper the better)

You can get just the glass. The mirrors are the same for all models so it just depends what type of mirror you have. Single lens or two for the mirror glass?
ETA: Heated?
Flat or convex?
