If you adjust your side view mirrors right you don't have any blind spots. adjust them 10 degrees out. (basically adjust it so when they leave your rear view mirror they enter your side view) It takes a couple weeks to get used to. mostly because you can't see your vehicle in them but you just have to learn to trust them (if there are no cars in your mirrors then your clear) It also makes parellel parking slightly harder.

I have them, but rarely ever use them. I still have not gotten used to trusting them completely. This is the first vehicle I have had them on.

I picked some of these up because of this thread. All I can say is that I'm in love! They help backing into spaces alot so you can see the lines to park in so you are not all crooked

Cool



I like these but after researching them, they didn't get great reviews. Anyone that has these, need some input. I'm towing a TT that's 8ft wide. Thanks.

that's funny, as their whole purpose is so can see your blind spot, which they are ever effective at. in addition, they come in various sizes.

well, all i have to say is Ugly and usless! If you did what you were taught in driving school or class or whatever, then you wouldnt need them. But yes us americans are lazy asses and dont want to turn our heads like we are suppose to. Never trust a mirror, always use your head
