Question Convex side view mirrors for Esteem

Dear Bhpians,

One thing I find lacking on my esteem is "convex" side view mirrors. The sideview mirrors used in esteem are plain and hence the viewable area is too small.

Any help on where to get "convex" side view mirrors for Esteem is much appreciated.

Mine is a 2001 VXi MPFi esteem

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Amal

I use the small round ones which can be stuck on the corner of the side view mirror.
Its too small and is a pain to peep into it though! It does help in city driving - to have an eye on the two wheeler riders closing in at the blind spot.

Thanks, Jeeva
Yes, I do use the small round ones. But, if there is a way, I could get the full convex, it would have been very convenient.

This is such a basic feature. Surprised, Maruti doesn't provide it by default even on VXi !

I was also an "IRVM only" user. In fact, I used to close those ORVMs while driving.
But, once I started using ORVMs ( both left and right ) a couple of years back, driving became all the more easier and safer. Trust me, there are a lot of blind spots when you depend only on IRVM.

i used to have the xl inside-RVM.
used to be slightly convex,about 40% larger than the OE.Clip on.
In conjunction with the ORVM, it completely eliminated the blind spots.
got it for 375 bucks

Any car which uses such convex curved OVRM's ? then u can check if the same can be fixed for esteem.

My friend who bought the car from me replaced the ORVMs with convex ones from Maruti Service Masters - Autoteam, Kochi. So, it seems, the new spare replacement for Esteem comes with the convex type mirrors.
