Got Mirror Extensions?
Does anyone sell mirror extenders that are painted to match the 014 red color?
I like my new gloves and jacket but don't really need to check em out everytime I look in my rear views.
Are the mirror extenders a worthwhile investment?
Follow up on 3/06/16: So I took the advice of several posts here.
1) I purchased the SW Motech Mirror extenders from Twisted Throttle. The bottom line for me is... THEY WORK GREAT! the extenders pushed the mirrors up and out enough to where they are completely user friendly. I have xlnt vision directly behind me. With the mirrors correctly positioned I get great side vision as well as unobstructed view to the rear. I can now use 95% of the mirror vs about 65% before.
My only gripe about the SW Motech Mirror Extenders is the finish. Instead of being smooth and polished they had these uneven lines running around them. Not impressed. I can live with the black color but if I ever want to paint match them I will need to spend a good deal of time sanding them smooth or else the paint will not look smooth and professional. I expect a lot more out of German quality, especially given that the price was high!
Summary... Function = A+ . Form = D-.
2) I purchased a set of the Adjustable Blind Spot Mirrors but given the success of the extenders have not used them.
