2013 C Class and Horrible Blind Spot - Tiny Mirrors
I'm a foreigner working in South Korea. I have new 2013 C-Class Avant Garde.
I love the car, but it has a horrible problem.
The Korean version of this car does "not" come with Blind Spot assist.
So I have to rely on the side mirrors.
The side mirrors on this car are tiny to say the least compared to my old car, and they have a horrible blind spot.
I've already nearly been in one accident because of it.
It's too the point where if I'm in heavy traffic, I'm afraid to change lanes because I have to do a shoulder check and I'm afraid I'm going to hit the guy in front of me while I glance back.
Through a translater, I spoke to the MB sales guy and he said I could get new mirrors for about $700 USD per mirror.
No way am I doing that.
The guy also suggested I get one of those tiny little mirrors you can put on your mirror, but I think those look ugy.
I've heard about 'Concave' mirrors which are curved so you can see the blind spot area.
Does anyone know where I can get one for this specific model of car?
Are they hard to install?
P.S. I've read about how to adjust your mirrors properly, but it didn't help much.
