General Facts To Consider Before Buying Wing Mirrors

General Facts To Consider Before Buying Wing Mirrors 

Side mirrors, also known as exterior mirrors, are mirrors which are placed on the outside of a motor vehicle to help drivers in seeing areas on the sides of the vehicle, outside of their peripheral vision or blind spot. Modern cars mount their side mirrors on the door pillars, wings or parts of the body behind the wheels. Being a fundamental part of a vehicle, do you know what to consider before buying it? 
The side mirrors on your vehicle are one of the most important parts on it because they allow you to see what is happening behind your vehicle. When you reverse or change lanes, your mirrors give you a clear view of where you are and how to react in time. 
Nowadays it is incredibly easy to replace a broken or damaged wing mirror, so there’s no reason for driving with poor peripheral vision.  It’s also worth noting that if you enter your vehicle for its MOT with a broken or faulty wing mirror it will receive an instant fail.
How To Choose The Right Side Mirrors For Your Vehicle
Many people use their rear view mirrors when they drive their vehicle, but there are a few different types of mirrors for cars. It's important that the correct wing mirror is purchased for the side that needs replacing because wing mirrors vary from the driver's side to the passenger side. Here are things to consider before you take the plunge and purchase a complete wing mirror:
        • Is it with a heated or non-heated glass?
        • Is it with a temperature sensor or without?
        • Is it with a blind spot sensor or without?
        • Is it electric or manual adjust?
        • Is it with power fold function or not?
        • Is it with indicator or without?
        • Is it with puddle light or without?
        • Is it with camera or without?
        • Is it with aerial or no aerial (also known as antenna)?
        • Is it short arm or long arm (vans only)?
