    This might sound stupid but I am interested in where people are mounting their little convex mirrors on their side mirrors.

    my first TACO had one on it when i purchased, and it was on the lower left corner. didn't do much for me though, it turned cloudy not long after, since I think it was just a reflective tape on the mount.

    The poll sucks. It should read top or bottom inside or outside. like this:

    • Top inside
    • Top outside
    • Bottom inside
    • Bottom outside
    • I don't use the small mirrors
    • I like pie
    • Fake boobies are still boobies



    Anyway, I have mine mounted bottom outside. It helps with parking. I have tried both ways and did not notice a difference.

    I was going to say the same thing... well, maybe not EXACTLY the same thing.

    Mine are mounted on the bottom, outside. I voted for bottom left, as I assume the OP was thinking about the driver's side mirror when he made the poll.

    Inside bottom. I use the larger rectangular mirrors instead of the round ones. Take up about a fifth of the mirror, so I still have plenty of visibility to the rear.

    i use the 2" x 1" rectangle spots, mounted on the outside lower corners of the mirrors. ~6 feet better visibility than mounted inside closest to the windows.

    Sorry guys! I should have worded it differently but most of you could figure out what I was trying to say and responded in a decent way. Thanks!

    Bottom left on the drivers side and bottom right on the passengers side. My old partner put them on our patrol car and for the 1st 2 weeks I thought they were useless. After a while I got used to them and now I put them on all my vehicles!!!

    When they get cloudy I just replace them.... heck they cost 99 cents!!!

    I don't use them, but the bottom left of the driver's side would yield the best view.

    Wasn't sure I'd like them, but I do.

    They make it easier to see people trying to ride in your blind spot- makes the blind spot alot smaller. They also make it easier to see how far/close I am to the lines on the road/parking lots.

    These are actually dangerous and an additional mirror should be used.

    I use them on bottom inside. I bought the ones that you can turn and just have it turned where i can see my blind spot. that is pretty much all i use them for and they work great.

    Dude don't get vaginal siliconeosis. It is the interweb relax. It is not our fault the canadian government did not issue you a sense of humor.


    I now know why you did not add the boobies option. :rolleyes:
