I've been driving with the mirrors way out for the past couple days and I
find it really does help while driving in traffic.  I live in NYC, so most
of my driving is in traffic that the average person never sees.  I also
have to parallel park (and can fit into a space with 2" clearance front
and back) and find that I can move the mirrors in when I'm parking.  I'll
be seeing how I like it on the highway tonight on my way to NH.
