    Ok did a search but could not find what I was looking for. I saw in a thread someone had some nice blind spot mirrors they got from I think Japan. I cannot find the tread again to ask where they got them. These where very clear and slick looking and look almost factory.
    Anyone have a idea where I can buy them or what there name is so I can search for them.
    Or do you have another set you like if so please post pictures and info

    Nope can't help you there.

    I experimented with many blind spot mirrors with The Prius. I actually think the side mirrors are a little on the small side.

    After numerous different mirrors finally just settled on the old simple round.

    Totally my mistake and fault. But in one of my "experimentation phases" I tried to quickly remove a blind spot mirror I stuck to the side mirror, without being careful and using an adhesive remover. CRACK....the actual mirror broke.

    This turned a $2.75 cent experiment in a side blind spot mirror, into a rather expensive dealers replacing the entire glass moment.

    So just a warning. When it comes to installation and removal, don't rush it, and be careful...obviously you don't want to break the actual mirror glass.

    One of my blind spot mirrors fell off after a couple of years. I then used some double stick tape and it stayed on for a couple of more years. After that I went to the local auto parts store and got a 2 more of them. I like the anti glare ones.

    I have a set on my car. You can tilt these up and down.

    The ebay price is reasonable for a shipped item. I'd buy em.

    Yeah, I have those too. Pain in the a$$ in my opinion. If you wash your car 2 times a week like I do, you constantly have to adjust them once you get back in the car. I wish they were non moving, then they would be perfect. I saw some little crescent moon shaped ones for motorcycle mirrors that I may try.
