BMW Blind Spot Mirrors
Extend the visibility of your factory side-view mirrors
Today’s vehicles are becoming increasingly more complex. With each new generation comes a host of new safety features and digital driver aids. Despite all of this modern technology, one thing remains consistent over the decades; the ability to quickly and easily see around your vehicle, which is vitally important to safe driving. Even with new technologies like blind spot monitoring systems, nothing replaces the ability to actually see the areas surrounding your vehicle at any given moment. No matter how you position your vehicles side-view mirrors, by design there will always be areas you cannot see. These areas are called blind spots. A common solution are convex mirrors, which are also known as blind spot mirrors. You will see blind spot mirrors used on virtually all vehicle types, including: motorcycles, passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and trucks. These products range from universal add-ons to factory integrated units. Like most products, quality and functionality can vary greatly.
“Just Set Your Mirrors Correctly”
This is something we see being discussed on a regular basis. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) published a paper in 1995 suggesting how side-view mirrors could be adjusted to eliminate blind spots. The paper advocates adjusting the mirrors so far outward that the viewing angle of side-view mirrors just overlaps the cabin’s rearview mirror. This method can absolutely reduce the common blind spots; however, it also creates new blind spots when done with BMW US market mirrors.
By moving the factory mirrors so far outward, visibility around the vehicle is reduced. Instead of eliminating blind spots, this method is actually just shifting them inward toward the vehicle. While vehicles in the traditional blind spots are more visible, parking is much more difficult. Additionally, vehicles, pedestrians, bikes and motorcycles near your vehicle can still be an invisible risk that still require turning to visually check.
No matter how you adjust your side-view mirrors, our Extended View blind spot mirrors are custom designed to show the entire blind spot area. This is accomplished not only by the unique curvature, but also the angle of the mirror base itself.
Far superior to universal blind spot mirrors
Universal blind spot mirrors come in various shapes, sizes and designs. Some are rimless and others are fully adjustable. Compared to our Extended View™ product line, simply put, there is no comparison. Universal blind spot mirrors are not specifically designed for your vehicle. They are generally an eyesore, which can significantly diminish the aesthetics of your BMW. Additionally, the convex curvature is often extreme, resulting in distortion and a reduction of depth perception. The vast majority of universal blind spot mirrors are made of some type of plastic with a reflective coating. The clarity this provides is less than ideal and will also break down over time.
Our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors are specially designed for your BMW vehicle. The overall shape, contour and scale are all customized based upon your factory side-view mirror. In addition, our engineers break down the viewing angle and curvature into as many as 7 planes of individual adjustment. This complex design process results in visibility that is far superior to any universal product. We use only premium quality, real glass, which further enhances clarity and provides long term durability. Once you use our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors, you will quickly see the NXTGEN difference.

OEM BMW European spec side-view mirrors with integrated blind spot visibility can cost between $300 to almost $1,000 depending upon your factory mirror type and where you buy them. Additionally, these Euro spec mirrors provide a small vertical viewing area, which can be difficult to differentiate from the main mirror portion at a quick glance. Besides being costly, these BMW Euro spec mirrors require you to remove your delicate factory installed mirror glass and install the new mirrors and wiring in the mirror housing.
By comparison, our Extended View™ blind spot mirrors for BMW start at only $34.95. They do not require any disassembling of your factory side-view mirrors and can be strongly bonded to your vehicle with genuine 3M adhesive tape in just minutes. No assembly or technical know-how required. They are exclusively designed for your specific BMW model to provide excellent visibility and aesthetics.
