Installed my convex Broadway mirror last night ...its a spring loaded clip on style . It looks great , not tacky looking, highly polished - no distortion, doesnt vibrate in place and the 270 mm convex version just fits in between the visors if you have it centered properly. So when somebody puts the visor down on the passenger side its not going to hit the mirror or vice versa. Field of view is hard to explain but its about 35% wider than the stock mirrors field of view . I can actually see out to the rear passenger window on that side of the car. Would highly recommend this mirror.

I had this size Broadway mirror in my xB for a few months, it does provide a wider view than stock and fits nicely between the visors. However since it's a convex mirror, then objects in the mirror are actually closer than they appear. At times it was hard to tell how close an object actually was until you turned around and looked. After living with the Broadway for a few months I replaced it with a 5-panel Wink mirror. The Wink mirror provides a great panaramic view however it takes up more interior volume and restricts visor movement. I felt the tradeoff was worth it. "Your mileage may vary."
