Question passenger side convex mirror 220D

Does anyone know if convex mirror glass is possible for a 220D. My mirror will not adjust in close enough to see the side of the car, so I thought if convex is available I could maybe buy a piece and have it cut and glue it on, or is convex mirror glass too thick for this application?

It was an option, not a very common one, but it was available. But really, I've always believed that what's passed is past.

Can't say as I recall ever seeing a passenger side mirror on a four cylinder pre-facelift 115

True, guess those pre-facelift cars had none. Mine is one of those, does it make it more difficult to drive??

The blind spot created by the rear pillar is the only concern, other than having to crane your neck when merging into another lane. I got used to it over time.
