Need wider side mirrors

Are there any wider mirrors out there that can be used to replace the existing factory mirrors on my '06, 158" Sprinter without too much cosmetic damage. Driving it on a crowded freeway seems more difficult than driving a Class C that I used to have. I would like mirrors that show more of the freeway lanes along the sides of my van. It's been my experience that wider mirrors work much better that tall narrow ones.

Did you know of the factory parabloic mirror extensions from the dealer?

Recommended - plus they integrate nicely with the originals.

They're about £50 a pair here. Note that they are handed though, so make sure you fit the correct one to each side. Take the mirrors off, then establish position for two small holes, drill through plastic housing, bolt them up and refit mirrors. Takes half an hour including putting the kettle on.

Sorted!

I went to the local dealer today and they had the mirrors in stock, but I didn't buy them. One set of mirrors cost $170 + tax =$181. Because the value of the dollar has dropped, the price has gone up about 50%. I will have to look for another alternative, maybe some of those little convex "stick-on" mirrors.

There are also those round stick-on parabolics you could use. They aren't much $ at all.

Also with the 3" stick on parabolic you don't have to worry about losing fuel mileage because of wind resistance.:thumbup:
