    Blind Spot Mirror..

    I installed this 18" wide mirror on the OEM mirror to view my blind spots...it's really helpful, specially when it's rainy / foggy outside and the water droplets on the side view mirrors reflects more lights and less rear view..
    Just had to get used to it and I can view everything behind in almost 180 degree..

    Or you can upload to a free hosting site and just link it here. I use Kodak Picture Gallery for compressing but it is cumbersome to use and not very user friendly when it comes to resizing pictures.

    Lookin good Amit. Wow. You really are into this blind spot stuff. Big rear-view mirror, the what ever its called mirror on the rear hatch and the stick on mirrors on the side view mirrors.

    I haven't seen all those on one van/car at the same time.

    I had a similar mirror like yours that clipped/clamped directly over the existing stock mirror without tools.
    It was great for visibility because my hatchback's OEM rear-view mirror was much too small for the field of vision.

    I just realized-- the window tint on your van's rear and side windows seems lighter than the stock tint on my US version.

    Blind spots stock Mirrors

    Did a search on mirrors, but no joy on this question....

    My wife is having a little trouble seeing folks when she is changing lanes. I was thinking of getting some stick on convex mirrors to put on the stock mirrors to help see the back corners of the vehicle better. I have seen the stick on mirrors in the auto parts store. Has anyone try this? Is there something else that may help more?

    Thanks

    Found using search term Blind and Spot

    Though the discussion is for the prior gen, it applies to this gen too as we are talking aftermarket mirrors here.
