Full rear veiw mirror and some other goodies

So I spoiled my car today. I finally installed my Wink Rearview mirror. Its a rally edition rear view mirror that goes across the whole dashboard. It is five mirrors angled towards the drivers seat. I also added some tint to her. I used Metrodecal's smokeout tint.

Wink mirror



kinda hard to see with the glare but here is a front view(I added the Fatlace decal)


and now tint(taillights, rear badge, lower rear reflectors, and steeringwheel badge).........debaged is in the near future, kinda hard to get a blow dryer in an apt complex parking lot haha


before(with led reverse)

after

turn signals(after only sry)



reflectors

steering wheel

that a radar showing ... where is it connected?

I think this is the right mirror for a family with 2 year old twins in the back seat.

I wired it down the side panel to under the drivers seat where i have a outlet splitter connected to the backseat 12v outlet. Its nice and clean over on the side and not right obnoxious being in the middle of my windsheild

It looks like you'd be able to see the whole back and side of the car using that thing. Isn't it a big distraction though?

Yeah, At first i was like WOW
But thinking about it , that mirror is really cool.
It is always hard to get the perfect arrangement of rear views, but with that mirror, i thnk you have it covered.
And i would agree, once you are used to it, it is really useful.
Thanks for a cool item i never saw anywhere before.

Its not really a distraction since it isnt any taller than the OEM mirror, its even slimmer. It gives a 10 times better picture since it is a flat mirror, where the original mirror is similar to the passenger mirror that makes images look smaller then they are so that the old rear view can fit everything in. The only way to describe it is a High Def rear view haha. Im constantly on the beltway and it makes it so much easier to navigate through cars
