Re: Blind Spot Caused by Drivers Side Mirror

I don't seem to have any issues with this. I am 5' 9/5' 10 (I know I'm considerably shorter than most males) and I feel that the pillar and mirror don't cause me any trouble. Maybe because I am shorter and have the seat lifted I don't find this to be an issue? Sorry I couldn't be of any help.

This may sound weird but I'd say 95% of Americans I met here are super fit and anything but lazy. Maybe because most are military/ex-military/contractors. One of my friends is ex military and is now working as a contractor here. Damn he's super ripped. I keep telling him to give me his abs, he keeps telling me it's all about diet+cardio.

Cardio I got down...but diet...I'm 50/50 on that one.

Re: Blind Spot Caused by Drivers Side Mirror

Have you noticed that much of the blindspot is created by the mirror housing, not the usable mirror space, but the aerodynamically "made to look good" (not safe) plastic mirror housings?
