CX3 Wing Mirror Placement

Post by gmb » Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:02 pm

Hey Owners. Anyone have issues with the placement of the wing mirrors? My wife has a 67 plate Sport Nav and finds the mirrors (especially the drivers) obscure her vision at roundabouts.
Admittedly she is only 5'2" and the seat is fully up, but the mirror being placed about 20cm back from the "A" pillar seems strange.

Shift seat back or forwards, or backrest more forward or further back. Just ideas. Im just 5'7'' and never noticed them even slightly impinging on view

I've not noticed an issue with obscuring of my vision due to the placement of the door mirrors, but the 'A' pillar does sometimes.

I've noticed the sun visor seems to leave a gap of about an inch between it and the A pillar. On my early morning journeys up the M3 the sun seems to always be in the position to shine through this gap. The only way to stop this is angle the visor right back but that causes other issues with vision. Rather annoying.
