If you want to see this for yourself, on a straight section of private road or track (don't do this on the public road), drive at 40km/...

Re: Broken wing mirror assembly (Sorento)

Try:

www.FourGreenAuto.com

www.CarMarka.com

www.partsouq.com

Import it yourself. You can get RHD parts from those websites for Korean vehicles.

I use Partsouq to get the exact part number for my car and then check CarMarka to see if they have the part and at what price. Their parts prices are a bit less than Partsouq, and much less than if I...

The Water Resources Agency (WRA) of WASA has rain recording gauges throughout Trinidad and Tobago. So there is available rainfall data throughout the country, but I am not sure of the frequency with which the data is downloaded/collected by the WRA. Plus, you have to purchase this data from the WRA.
