Why these mirrors? Rearward vision is shitty as it is. I see no need to make it worse by adding smaller mirrors

I believe these actually have a wider angle lens so you actually see more than the oem mirrors. Besides the oem mirrors are ugly and way too tall but have horrible side visibility.

I find these 'race' mirrors too ugly. I would stay with OEM.

Actually these eliminate 2 blind spots vs. The stock truck mirrors. Thanks for all your opinions.

Anyway it was posted to let people know that want a smaller slimmer mirror.

When I added on my 350z it eliminated the front left turn blind spot and the rear visibility was improved greatly.

Hard to get a shot that represents where my eyes actually are but at least you can see how much space it opens up vs. having the big dumbo ear oem mirrors in the way.

The 'left turn/people in the crosswalk blind spot' is about to make me change out my mirrors. I've got a set of Ganadors (wanted to retain the power adjustment) that need painting first

Did any of you add some weather stripping on the backside? I did that on my 350z but wasn't sure if you all did on yours?

I did not. Three screws mount it securely with no issues.
