You don't need to replace the complete mirror just because the lamp fails. Did you ask the dealer how much the lamp itself is?
I've replaced loadsa these lamps on VWs but never done one on a Hyundai. It's usually a 15~20min job to replace a VW one.
I've only ever used genuine VW lamps too, so can't comment on the quality of the Chinese knock offs.
The left side of the car means the driver's left when he is sitting in his seat. In the trade we don't talk about left and right. We talk about the near side (left) and off side (right) to avoid any confusion.
