Installed the 300 mm Broadway mirror to help out with the blind spots. Now I have a view out the rear passenger windows. If you read the notes the 300 mm will give you visability on 2 blind spots and it does. Visors clear the mirror.

I have a 270mm, I felt the 300mm was way to big for the vehicle. For some reason 270mm have worked very well in all my vehicles. Broadway mirrors are the best and a must in any vehicle that can use one.

Haha I have the same one...if you flip the stock mirror behind it upside down you actually raise the mirror higher, giving you better field of vision.
And another thing ovmech...not sure you are aware you can push up on the arm connecting to the glass...it kinda takes a little force but that also gives more field of vision under the mirror.

Thanks for the info. I see how you flipped the mirror 180. I haven't driven at night yet. How is it a night? Yes mine from Amazon. Didn't do much looking around for a better price. I have prime so it is 2 day free shipping and no tax.

Hi Miscion
I bought my Broadway mirror at Pann Auto Performance in San Diego and have had this same mirror on multiple cars. Honestly, Amazon probably has a better price. I had a horrible blind spot in my last Mercedes and I bought the 300mm that was convex so I could see out the rear side windows with ease. I don't suggest getting the flat version.
Hi Ovmech
I don't worry about driving at night as my windows are tinted. In the past if I didn't have tinted windows I bought a mirror that was tinted.

The wink mirror was quite popular back in the 80's, but not being able to use the visors is not convenient. I use a Broadway convex mirror and it does the job very well. Great suggestion regardless.

Ya, that is a bit much for me.

Thanks for the bit about being able to push up on the arm. I didn't even know that. I also checked the manual and it also says the same thing (pg 103).

That does seem really inconvenient. However, possibly something I would want to throw in a drift missile... ;)

Does the 300mm still allow for you to lower your sun visor? I'm not at my car to get a better idea but do know the 300mm obstructed on a previous car I had.
