IMO make & Model don't matter, its not like they make High quality Wide Rear view mirror clip ons anyway, they're all basically the same, i just bought the Type R One, and the size is 290MM and it looks perfect

broadway mirrors, any size (personal preference), convex (unless you are use to concave, or was it vice versa?)

i bought the 300mm broadway mirror from some store in chinatown. i think if the mirror's too wide it gets in the way of your sun visors?

I have a 240mm convex... It works well enough for me... It takes care of the passenger side blind spot. It's not much bigger than the stock mirror, so if you want a more dramatic look/ increase in rear sight get a 270mm convex. I wouldn't go beyond that though...

i got a broadview 270mm convex one
its a perfect fit, big enough to see the whole rear windshield plus top of the seats and one of the side windows, and also some of the headliner!
yet it doesnt get in the way of the sun shades!
it bearly clears!

i got mine from naplolex.com

It will rarely load when I have it in that position and press the close button. Usually I put my hand on the disc and hold it in place as it slides in, then that works. As far as PS2 position, I just let it slide in. I have a Japanese PS2 I got that was modded in Hong Kong while I was there Summer of 2000.
