Re: side mirrors


Hi, I like the side mirrors, as the view to the rear is very limited using the internal rear vision mirror. I have found that to look at both mirrors frequently when a vehicle is approaching gives me a good idea as to the distance you have to adjust your sight. I have found that the external mirrors do not give a blind spot.
I also ride a Harley Davidson, these rear view mirrors are the same as Exy and I love them - yep, distance is hard to judge, but if you can see them up close in your mirror - they are b-----dy close.
Better that you see them than pull out in front of them due to a blind spot.
Safe driving to you all.
Allan

Re: Side mirrors are dangerous!


A mate has a Kia Sorento and I think it's his car that has the curved mirrors like the XTrail but the inner 30mm is Flat so you get the wide angle effect but also the flat area to judge distance when pulling out or changing lanes.

Works really well.

Perhaps a solution is to acquire a ~30mm wide piece of mirror that is the height of the original and glue it to the inner section of the existing; or buy a mirror insert that has a flat section (from Kia maybe!!!!)

I think if you glued a flat section the effect might be confusing and dangerous as side mirrors often only get a quick glance. Need to experiment and be careful.

Re:


You can buy rectangular blind spot mirrors that stick on from any auto shop for a couple of bucks.
Much easier solution.

Looked at those - but never seen one with Straight glass - all the ones I've seen are curved like the wing mirror.

Re:


Phillipa's old A Class Mercedes had the combination flat & convex mirrors but more recent models had convex on the drivers side so we never bought 1 (got the exy instead).

You should never rely on your mirrors anyway. Always do a shoulder check and cover your butt emoticon

Re: Side mirrors are dangerous!


I have ridden a M/Bike for years and found the convex mirrors great, after a time to get used to them.
On my little Corolla, I fitted the 50cent size convex mirror to each of the external "flat mirrors", love them.
Now with my new Nissan, I am in heaven. If I can see a vehicle pretty good in the external mirror in another lane - they are really really close.
I know some women who say, they can't judge distance. Then say - only a bloke would design these.
To me they are a safer way to go. Albeit, you have to get used to them.
Cheers, Allan
