Side view mirror replacement

My driver side rear view mirror has recently been FUBARed. (F**k up beyond all recognition) I have been scouring my local junk yards and I can't seem to find a replacement. So I think I'm just going to buy one off Amazon. What do you guys think of this one?

Amazon.com: TYC 5730232 Nissan Driver Side Power Non-Heated Replacement Mirror: Automotive Amazon.com: TYC 5730232 Nissan Driver Side Power Non-Heated Replacement Mirror: Automotive

The stealership is just too expensive, but I'm a little hesitant to go with the aftermarket.

Coming Soon: CST 4" Spindle Lift, HIDs, on board Air and Train Horn

You need the entire assembly? You can buy the glass from Nissan pretty cheap.

I should take a picture but yea the whole thing is obliterated. I don't have plastic to glue back together.

The amazon mirror was a perfect fit. Looks factory and took all of 15 min to install.

How do you get the old mirror out?
A few of the guys here in OZ have been asking how to get them out. Figured the Fronty mirrors might be same as ours
