Last night, i drove my friend's frontier, and he had a blue broadway mirror. And looking into it, i realized how big of a difference it made on my blind spots, etc...

Anyone have one for their cars??? I was looking on ebay and I saw several links, there are some that's blue, and some that's clear and 2x brightness. Also, what size should I get. They range from 240-320. My friend has a 320MM on his truck, but htat's a truck. What size should I get for my accord??

I was looking into the same thing, I can't decided whether I want 300mm 2x bright, or 270mm blue tint. I thik the blue tint might look retarded though, and my wondows will be getting tinted soon so 2x bright might be the way to go

I have a 300mm one. It's just the right size for me. I have it off center on the mirror so that the passenger can still use the visor. I never use my visor anyways so I don't mind it. I can't imagine not having a nice large mirror anymore.

I 've had the the 300mm joint for 3yrs and I wouldn't drive w/o it! I got it because the rear A pillar on my old 5th gen coupe was terrible and I always had to turn my head. After the broadway, I can see the everything and can concentrate on the things in front of me. I like it so much I couln't wait to put it in my sedan.

So, i'm assuming a 300MM would be perfect for my AV6??? can anyone back it up?? i just wanna make sure, i hate to look forward on buying something and for it not fitting, it's really frustrating.

if you even have a remotely big system beware of the broadway mirrors, it adds enough weight to the mirror and made it so I've snapped 4 mirrors so far, they snap right at the stalk. I just broke another one yesterday without even having a broadway on when I was testing out this :D

(yes I know I have no trunk, and the port hole is ugly, it's just a temp box, I wanted to hear how a pair of ported solobarics sounded in my car, and I love it, not bad for a $50 box and an hour worth of install time, snapped the mirror on the first bass note :D)

:eek2: OMG....seriously, that sorta bass can't be too good for you. I can't begin to fathom the kind of migranes u must have...hehehe. Good point though, for those with systems, should really consider smaller, lighter mirrors.
