I am new here, a quick background. I have owned over 40 different OEM cars and I am a professional photographer who also does new product and technology reviews. I just completed a review of the NxTGEN blind spot mirrors designed for BMWs. In a word they are brilliant

So why am I posting here? Because NxTGEN makes similar mirrors for each of the Tesla models.

NxTGEN mirrors are significantly different from other after market blind spot mirrors in several ways:
-they are specifically made for all the Tesla models 3, Y, S and X and shaped to match the contours of the Tesla OEM mirrors
-they are made of real glass
-the scale, ratio and curvature of the glass is researched and designed to provide an ultra-clear continuous image despite being actually a combination of nine planes refined to capture all of the blind zone

I conducted pre and post NxTGEN mirror tests of the normal blind zones with my mirrors set to the recommended SAE settings. I was amazed at how much more you could see in the driver side, which IMO, eliminated all of the blind zone.

Here is the normal view from my driver's side mirror:

And here is the view in the NxTGEN blind spot mirror:

You can see in the NxTGEN mirror, not only the KIA but also the cars on both sides of it along with my pseudo pedestrian/bicyclist all normally in the OEM mirror blind zone.

Here are the NxTGEN mirrors as attached to the OEM mirrors
