I have a 300mm convex mirror. I can see a lot better, but you can't put the passenger sunshade thingie all the way down.

and don't u just hate it when people pull the shade down and move your mirror? but then that thing is so big you can still see a lot no matter how you adjust it.

I use the 240mm one so that I can use the shade and the passenger can also.

1 meter mounted directly onto the windshield.
that way you can't even move it. There wouldn't even be any need to.

I used to think these things were ricey cuz like every car imaginable has one... then my friend got me one for my bday and i'm like "Meh" and i put it on, i drove around with it for a day, took it off, and then i coudnlt drive without it!! it helps ur view so much. I have a 300mm FLAT.. convex gives u more view but it makes things the wrong size so i dont like it... bad depth perception. i wanna get a 360=-P. oh and as everyone else said, i hate it when passangers try to put hte shade down, and dotn realize the mirrors in the way, so they just use all their strength to SHOVE it down, where the mirror ends up facing the wrong way =-X

I love mine (270mm). It did take a little getting used to but I don't know if I could live without it now.

LOL 360mm? That will be like those big mirrors buses have haha. Even with my 270mm the passenger sun shade has a hard time coming down. Wide mirrors are sweet, visibility improved dramatically

DOOD, with 360 no more blind spots!!!!!!! j/k... yea i tried puttin on a 360 once.. it's so long it touches the damn windshield.. might as well get those nascar ones where it goes accross ur whole windshield and has 5 seperate mirrors! oh and a flaw about the broadway mirror: no anti-glare switch thingy.
