I have a small wide angle mirror on the outside driver's mirror. It works fine.

All vehicles have a left side Spot mirror, I love the super wide center rear view mirrors, they help a lot on multi-lane/outer belt highway driving. *****

yes, it's a great aid to avoid blind spots on the sides of your car.

most newer vehicles have this integrated from the factory these days

either that, or sideview/blindspot cameras or sensors

it's only $2 for a set of fish-eye mirrors from the local walmart ~ goto the RV section, not the car accessories section (currently $1.97 for 2 adjustable mirrors)

Yes, I have a 2013 Volkswagen CC and recently switched from stock mirrors to Blue Tinted Heated Blind Spot Split Mirror (convex mirrors) and I love them because I see everything, even 2 lanes over can be seen when angled properly.
