Default passenger side gray mirror

Hi,
I am looking for a passenger side gray mirror for my Japanese built
2001 Camry. The dealer quoted an exorbitant $250. I hesitate to pay
that kind of money just because it is purely cosmetic. I say this
because the mirror is intact and working. It is only the external gray
housing which is chipped when I was pulling out of the garage one
morning in a hurry.
Is anyone out there who thinks/ can recommend someplace where I can
purchase only the housing?
I know its a tall order but no harm in asking. If gray is a hard to
obtain, I am willing to buy only the black and paint the driver side
black also for uniformity.
Your thoughts /suggestions are most welcome
Thanks

Try one of the online OEM yota parts places - they discount 20-30% (do a
Google search) plus NO tax at most. The OEM mirrors come prepainted. Sell
your old one on ebay - lots of folks break just the glass part. Expensive
because it is motorized. Painting an aftermarket black one will cost you $50
or better. Duct tape the old one if asethetics don't bother you.

You can buy black entire assembly ones on Ebay for less than $50.
That's where I got mine.

I managed to do the same thing last week. I went with rockauto.com. I
don't hear much about them on the Toyota boards but they seem popular among
the Jeep crowd.
