Default Moment of stupidity= Destroyed mirror

I was driving last night on a street that was a bit narrower due to snow- when due to my inattention to the right side from a vehicle coming the other direction, I clipped a mirror of an older van with my passenger side mirror. The van's mirror was only slightly damaged (I think it was solid steel!) while my mirror was destroyed-- with pieces all over the street! I have never done this before in my 25 years of driving, so I feel pretty stupid to say the least!

My question is-- do the aftermarket mirrors have the fit and finish of the factory units? I have the fold away- non trailer tow power w/ defrost (GTS) mirrors. They are sustantially less expensive - and Ebay has some even cheaper (which makes me wonder even more!).
