5 panel panoramic mirrors

Posted in a previous thread but i was probably in the wrong place. Any thoughts or opinions on these 5 panel mirrors? Apparently they show all blind spots. Does anybody know any good brands if there are any?

Friend of mine actually had one of these in his E36. It did show pretty much every spot you would need to see, but it did look a little sloppy or out of place. It didn't fit his car very well, but what he does to his car is none of my business. Back to your question, I do not know the brand, but I'd assume even an eBay brand one would get the job done, right? If I were you I'd get the cheapest one I could find unless you are positive you want it. Then again, what you do to your car is none of my business.

For me the best solution is to set my rear view mirrors differently. Instead of a set up where you see the sides of the car set them up to see the adjacent lanes. How? Lean your head against the window and set the mirror to see the car then lean in towards your inside rear view mirror and set up the outside right mirror. Voila! You will see cars approaching in your inside rear view mirror and then once they reach the so called blind spot you will see them in your outside mirrors. And it's free!
