Car wing mirrors have undergone a bit of a revamp in recent years, being reinvigorated to comply with the demands of our consumerist and technology driven world these days.Some wing mirrors can be readjusted in some cars at the touch of a button or knob inside the car. Known as power car wing mirrors, they can even be set according to particular memory controls in the car.
For instance, in some cars such as the Saab 9-5, the wing mirrors can be set in a particular position for each driver that uses the car. This can then be stored in the memory controls of the car meaning the wing mirrors can be readjusted at the touch of a button.
Power mirrors can also be useful in situations such as parking. The passenger window can be moved in order to view the other side of the car against the pavement. It may also be useful when driving through a very narrow space.Drivers can find mirrors these days in a range of different colours and can even have them painted in a different colour to the rest of the car if they want to make more of a statement.
Cars have mirrors at each of their sides to allow them to catch a glimpse of what is happening on the road behind them. These mirrors need to be adjusted in a way that allows the driver to be able to see part of the road at each side of the car, just on the off chance that another driver is overtaking them. If the windows do not show enough of the road, this could actually create a ‘blindspot’ that could lead to problems.The rear view mirror also lets the driver see what is happening out their back window. This is useful if they are reversing or cannot get a full view using their side mirrors for instance.
