Default Broadway mirror

http://www.properautocare.com/bw-76.html

Opinions? What would you recommend -- flat or convex?
Also, they are available I think in 240mm, 270mm and 300mm
sizes. Which one do you think is the optimal size for the Pilot.
I wish I could simply pick one up and try it, but I don't know of
anyone who carries it in the neighborhood

No idea. Interesting product. Let us know how it works out. See that it clips over the existing mirror and is made from high quality Japanese parts vs other Asian parts. Same with the Pilot?

I am also looking for a replacement since the OEM is small. Let us know what you get and your evaluation. The Convex Ultra-bright Mirror BW-87 appears to be better for the Pilot due to the tinted glass.

Default What are the differences of those options...

Can you tell your experience about the Flat and Curve mirrors, what is the advantages and disadvantages.

And what is the Chrome, Alum., and Optic. Is that just the look or have real good features ?

Anyone, help.

Check out this link. Little more info.
I am thinking Optics might be the way to go.
Still can't decide Convex vs Flat -- really
need to try to know.

I have this addon for most of my car.

Damn, the factory mirror is so small. I can even see anything with the mirror.

With Broadway, I have a greater view. I can see blind spot without turning my head.

I just took out one of the mirror and install to my pilot. I think it is a 280mm. I have a 300mm in my 99 accord. Works great.

I have both.

My pilot has the flat 280mm one. My accord has the 300mm convex one.

IMO, I like the flat one because the view from the mirror is normal. The convex one has more viewing angle, but weir view (like a funny mirror) . So, it depends on your preference.

Default Convex mirrors

Convex mirror = OBJECTS ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR

Just like many passenger side mirrors...one convex mirror in the vehicle is enough for me.

True, but how do you deal with the "blind"
spot, especailly on a truck this size?
That calls for those little stick-ons
on each side. Plus, if you have kids, a child
mirror on top of this. That's 3 convex mirrors
that can be potentially replaced by the convex
rear view mirror. On the other hand -- I don't particalarly like convex mirrors


It would definitly be nice to try first.
Chinalfr -- do you have a digital camera?
Some pictures good pictures would definitely
help!

The blind spot on the Pilot is alot smaller than the blind spot on my 99 Ford F-150 4X4 Extended Cab which has very large pillars. I have always owned full size trucks, in addition to our cars, so I am comfortable with blind spots and using the outside mirrors more.

Default Got My Broadway Mirror

Just bought and installed the 360mm Broadway with flat glass. It is like going from a 9" TV to a wide screen TV. I did not go with the convex glass 'cause wife may not get use to it. It clips on and off very easily. the panaramic view is amazing comparing to the tunnel vision view from the stock mirror. I can see the width of the back window from the stock mirror, but with the 360mm Broadway, my view spans the back window, the third window and 3/4 of the 2nd window. I will need to adjust the proper position best suited for me with more driving experience. Got it locally here in Rockville MD from a store that sell mainly Japanese small toys and gidgets. Costed $21. See two pics below.

hoppy,

After a couple of days driving around with the
new mirror, how does it feel? Do you like it?
Do you think you went with the right size?
I am wondering if 360mm is perhaps too big,
would 300mm be better? Is it to a point where
it obstracts your forward view?

Please share,

K
