2009 BMW 750i: Tiny Outer Mirrors

February 10, 2010

As regular readers may know, I love our long-term 2009 BMW 750.
I even prefer it to our long-term M3, but I'll write that post another day.

One thing I don't like about our 750 (besides the engine accessory drive noise, wind noise, and throttle hesitation, then surge) is the outer mirrors. They're tiny.

I suppose this was done in the name of styling, because from the outside those mirrors don't look too small.

This is one car that would benefit from a blind spot detection system.

Turn my head? Yeah, I do that too.

But good mirrors and a proper blind spot detection system can also be helpful.
