2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Surprised More Cars Don't Have This Feature Yet
January 26, 2010
Not sure why putting turn signal indicators in the side mirrors didn't occur to manufacturers earlier. Oh I'm sure there are some federal regulations that mandate their location to some degree, but putting them closer to people's field of vision seems like a smart move.
They've slowly been migrating to mirrors on luxury cars as if they're some kind of fancy extra, which I guess they are to some degree. Well, extra this is, not fancy.
On our Mazdaspeed 3 they're nicely integrated so they don't look tacked on or overly obnoxious. I'm guessing we'll be seeing more of these on more cars and trucks in the coming years and that's probably a good thing.
