Hey why have blind spots when you dont have to ? now that is the question :p, just think there cool as well and the bonus of not having to move my head to look around lazy man style.

They would have to catch me first to check hehe ;).

Yup double D's + Vtec + Hard suspension+ County B roads = fun

Try a broad way mirror or long-acre.
Unless your after that "scene" look?

Wouldn't say they where that efficient from a track car perspective.
Compared to a convex mirror like the long acre they weight a lot more and are a fair bit more bulky without doing anything different?
Obviously if it's what you want it's what you want...
They put them on golf buggies do they not?

There main use is to look around roll cages and mainly used in rally cars but i just like the look of them and the added view-ability is just a bonus, If i was really been pure track style i would prob just wack a Broadway one but as the track to daily driven ratio is incredibly low think il just go with the Wink for more as you put it "scene" points lol.

Also iv heard alot people who had the broad view and then got a wink and said they would never go back, and there no way a broad view can give you as much view as a 5 panel wink mirror plus they get hate from people who never used or seen one properly half the time.

You'll have to get one and set a new trend on here!
I'll be honest, I did look into them awhile ago but I ended up doing the decent thing and got a long acre.
Could see out the passenger quarter with it easy so along with the other mirrors there was no blind spot.
