Feel like I need to re-visit this subject. The other day, I made a lane change, and glance-checked over my shoulder after viewing the mirror. During the fraction of a second that I was looking over my shoulder, the car in front of me slammed on his brakes to make a quick turn. I had left a decent "margin of safety" and so it wasn't really a close call, but I did have to move over into the next lane more quickly than planned. Had I been in thick traffic, or had other issues, I may not have been able to have that extra space.
I would really like to find a solution, I think that any time you take both eyes away from forward-facing increases risk. I'm blown away that the factory would make these mirrors without making them a bit convex and with such limited view.
I like the stock mirrors and their positioning. Is there anything other than stick-on mirrors to address this problem? I think stick-on's would look terrible.
