Why are rear-view mirrors not mounted on the wing now they are remotely controlled? Asks Mr. Polling.
Wing mirrors spoil the line of any car – especially the modern design. Can you imagine what wing mirrors would look like on a Ferrari or Maserati for example!
Door-mounted mirrors give a much better view of traffic behind. Personally, however much I liked a car I would not buy it if someone had stuck wing mirrors on it. And as for those people who go and stick wing mirrors on a car with door-mounted mirrors as original fitting, the mind boggles. Or maybe they like driving in a “Hall of Mirrors”.
