You stick it to your side mirror and it keeps it clear of water so you can see easier, also apparently helps with glare, I think I'll order some and let you know, I really struggle to see with them when everyone has their brights on especially with it raining.

None of that type of product review all that well on Amazon. If you find a good one I'd like some, I wipe my mirrors every morning but they rain and fog up making lane changes difficult.

Yes, because getting rid of an existing car to purchase a new one that's a flash enough model and has the right specs for the purpose of having heated mirrors is the cost-effective answer to this problem.

Just do what everyone else seems to do these days, turn your indicator on and move across 😝

I did lol at this, sadly my 2017 Suzuki Swift doesn't have heated side mirrors.

 

 

 

So... they have arrived.. https://photos.app.goo.gl/nTzAhaLG4mr7eTQB6 

 

I'll put them on tomorrow, not overly enthusiastic given the quality of the packaging and chinglish, I don't think the "Made in China" was necessary as it was kind of implied.

 

Wish me luck, will report back if working or in car crash.

I tried those a while back. Added them to an order from aliex with some headlight polishing stuff (which actually worked really well)

 

The stickers were hopeless. Also where car headlights behind hit it, the whole thing would glow so it was actually harder to see than with the water droplets on it.
