the side mirrors r really bad compared to other cars. i've got a huge blind spot and it's almost cost me dearly a couple of times. had to stick on one of those tiny fish eyes mirrors just to see bikes overtaking me. uurrghhhh

I have had fun, pulling out of a layby... needless to say i always double check now. Thing is they are so big there is no reason why they can't be good.

RIGHT! Had a great encounter today where checked the mirrors all looked good signalled to move out, someting told me to glance in my rear passanger window, just in time to see the nose of the van I would have hit, had I pulled out. Very very dangerous blindspot in these cars buy the little blindspot mirrors i urge you before it is really too late. A fiver or your pica, i chose the pica.

The mirrors should carry a warning "MIRRORS SHOW WRONG MAGNIFICATION... OH AND NO TRAFFIC DUE TO BLINDSPOT. IN SHORT: USELESS" :crying:

i dont feel that this is a major problem. the biggest headache is the HUGE magnification recieved by the rear view mirror. that makes the distance behind you shrink which can be disconcerting when travelling in traffic and parking
