Oh the 2 pack adjustable mirrors are still $1.99 at the rv section at the local Walmart... The ones in the regular auto section costs more for some reason.

Yes, as a commercial driver, I like the wide angle view when making sure there are no obstacles in my way...

Sure I turn my head to make sure I'm in the clear, but those fish eye mirrors helps a lot

More ford ,gm, and other models are integrating them from the factory as well.

No, I set my mirrors to the SAE recommended position which covers blind spots quite nicely, thank you very much.
