      I've been meaning to ask you this... If you are driving a car that has flat mirrors, in a rental car for example, how do you adjust them? I've been setting mine using the "taxi driver" method for a while now -- after adjusting the driver's seat to your comfort, you lean far left and adjust the driver's side mirror so that the back of your car is just barely out of view, then lean all the way toward the center and adjust the passenger's side mirror the same way. When you are seated upright/centered, you don't see any part of your own vehicle. It's means that any vehicle that's in your "blind spot" normally, will now leave your rear view mirror and enter your side mirror without said blind spot. I've never had issue doing this. Do the EU mirrors help beyond these parameters?
      For most driving situations I set my mirrors to the SAE guidelines regardless of DOT or ECE, where there is no overlap between the field of view of the center and side mirrors. Adjusting that way with the ECE mirror, I don't have any blind spots when set this way and do not need to look anywhere other than my mirrors to change lanes. It also eliminates headlight glare from the cars next to me at night. I rely heavily on my center mirror. Your results from the "leaning" method probably are at least somewhat similar but i prefer to skip that and actually adjust the overlap until it's infinitesimally small since that's what actually matters.

      https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...d-blind-spots/



      I deviate from this when I am in city traffic and these is a possibility of bicycles exceeding rate of automobile traffic flow. Then I aim my side mirrors in so that the side of the car is at the edge of my field of view. I don't like doing that but gotta be able to sight down the lanes backwards for lane splitting bikes. Center mirror usually would be covering that area for me but, usually being blocked by other cars behind me, is useless for that. The ECE driver's mirror helps a lot to minimize blind spot on the driver's side. My friend who bought my white 850R lives in the city and I am going to loan him a ECE P80 RHD driver's mirror that I randomly have in stock for further testing in city traffic.

      It definitely has the puddle light, and I could manually fold it. Let me poke around the garage might have both sides.

      Chicago Wagon is spot on with how to adjust mirrors, how a Ford safety engineer explained it to me one time.

      And supposedly fits all P1/P2/P3. Interesting. I should look at my wiring and see if there is a connection there for it.

      I don't see anything under the mirror except for the temp sensor. I thought maybe there would be an outline for where the light would go. Maybe there's something on the inside?

      I'm doing it for the security. When my mom's former 04 V70 locked her out the last time she tried to drive it, I was able to break in in like 20 seconds. This car does occasionally get parked places I'm not super comfy with so that's absolutely unacceptable to me. Plan is to add the laminated glass all around and then replace the lock pins with some that are flush when locked. I think that should slow down any potential bad guys enough to bring risk levels into compliance with my personal risk management strategy.

      The noise reduction will be a nice bonus, too.

      My dad hit 140k on the way home to get the T-5R. That was two weeks ago and I haven't driven it since lol.





      Wax was toast so I finally had to wash it. Made it almost a year. I don't like washing it because the turkeys attack it when it is clean . If anyone would like to go turkey hunting in my neighborhood, please PM me. Or if you have some extra coyotes you're not sure what to do with, I'll take those, too.






      Still cleans up well even if I can't do it very often. Got it hidden behind the T-5R in the driveway so the turkeys don't see it. Should be be nice and dusty again soon with all the pollen out there right now.

      When your customer has the same car:



      Oh yeah, owner of the boat (not the plastic one in the left of the picture) had it loaded on a ship to Rotterdam an hour after we were there......why is everything good going to the Netherlands




      Must be summer blend gas time. Fuel economy is up like 2½ mpg the last two tanks.

      Let's see if this helps me hit my parking spot in fewer tries. My margin of error on parking is about 1" and it takes waaaaaay too long. I'll continue the left stripe all the way forward when the car isn't there to get overspray on.

      Quick trip to VT to check out a new toy with my neighbor yesterday.....(yeah I know what you're thinking.....I drove myself #2020)

      141k and more excellent fuel economy. That's actual tank average.
