E32 Side Mirror Vision

I have an E32 740iL.

It is fun to drive around but too bad the side mirror vision is too narrow. All the objects in the mirror look nearer than what actual is. It is hard to judge the distance.

Did anybody know how to improve the vision for this model?

Unless you get an aftermarket mirror you will have to adjust it to your liking.

The mirror is designed to show objects nearer that is the whole point of it.

I knew the meaning of it. But its really show very near & hard to judge how far the distance is. Sometimes those bikes or car which quite near of me i can't notice them. Few times slightly hit bike. Really hope that can improve the vision to getting wider. Safer for me & others road users too.

Right hand drive cars and left hand drive have the curved mirror on opposite sides. see if you can find an opposite handed mirror glass for that side.
