broadway mirrors work really well. especially if you have a bucket seat. with the bucket seat its hard to turn your head and stuff. therefore if you get the broadway mirror you can see more of your view. the broadway mirror allows you to see objects farther.....i dont know another way to put this. but theres regular kind and complex kind. the complex works best....for me at least.

Usually, I would say that is the wrong forum for this type of question, but....I'll overlook it just this once.

They are great, I run them in every car that I've ever had. I have one in my gf's car but she prefers the flat version as opposed to the curved version. And since we have tinted windows there's no need for the polarized glass.

cause we look over our shoulders for blind spots instead of relying on a mirror Click the image to open in full size.

I've tried several differnt options to find something that makes me happy. So far after 3 different mirrors I an not satisfied. Got a longacre flat mirror coming this week. I just couldn't get used to the convex mirror. Cars passing on my right side real fast had me thinking I was about to get rearended all the dam time. Went to a flat 10 inch. Thats what I am using right now. I really need to make a custom bracket to get something I am please with. The porsche club has a shop and I will be there the 1st so I will see what we can come up with.

not boradway, but I use a 300mm Convex RAZO mirror. I dont know how anyone can use the stock mirror. I've had a aftermarket mirror in everyone of my cars, and dont prefer to drive without one.
