Look on ebay for mirrors replacement or junk yard, it will save you allot and you can do it yourself just by popping the mirror cover off on the opposite side of the door to access the bolts that hold the side mirrors on. 10 minute job. the mirrrors should cost you 25-50 bucks depending on condition of it. if the mirrors is diffrent color, it will need to be repainted to match the car, 50-100 buck depending on the shop, check macos, they are cheap or call around and shop and get couple estimate wont hurt. Lots of car dealers use those portable/mobile touch up guys, the dealers used them to fix and touch up all of their cars, you might want to stop by some dealership and ask one of the used car managers ask him/her who they use and phone number, those portable/mobile touch up guys does very good job, cheap and fast. oil leak under the car, can be transmission leaks or you rear main seal, common to high miles cars to leak from the rear main seal which they have to remove the tranny from the motor to get to it, the parts is cheap but the labors will get you. you probably looking if the rear main seal, 500- 900 bucks depending on the shop. you can drive on the leaks as long you keep the tranny fluid monitor making sure the fluid does not go empty in the transmission.
