Default Cutting tile on a wall

I wanted to put a new mirror cabinet in my washroom but the one I bought is a little bigger than the one I have. There's a back splash that goes from the ground half way up the wall, so the new mirror cabinet will overlap the tile. How can I make a clean cut to perfectly fit in my new mirror?

Also the back splash is not the like a kitchen splash the tiles are individual and a lot bigger so it shouldn't be a problem. Can anyone help? Thank you!

Welcome Andrew:
I have used a small 3" side-grinder to cut tile on the wall. It was very easy to cut and to keep straight. Wear a resperator, the dust is awful not to mention carcigneic.
