You guys are correct. It took some time to get used to the new mirror positions, but now that I am, it is a much better system with no blind spots.
Who really needs to see the side panels of their vehicle anyway? I used to do so because I though it gave me a better visual guide to my distance from the other vehicle; but when the vehicle behind you smoothly transitions from the rear-view to the side-view with no loss of visual contact, there is no need for additional positional information.
