Im about to buy my broadway mirror, just wondering if anyone has the 270mm? I want to get that one but i dont want it to hit my visors.

Also if you have the convex one on a coupe, is there any point in getting one since you dont have rear windows?

I have a 240mm convex and it's perfect.
I also own a 270mm convex, but I've never even test fit it, just keep it in the suv lol

240mm convex will give a view out of the entire rear windshield as well as some of the rear passenger window, no problems at all clearing the visors.

Can you post a pic if the 240mm in your Accord? I may pick one up based on how it looks in your ride. I can't stand the auto-dim on my rear view, always shut it off when I start the car.

Top mirror is a normal convex 270mm Broadway mirror.
Bottom mirror is a Type A convex 240mm Broadway mirror.

I personally prefer the 240mm. The 240mm is almost exactly the same length as the oem mirror and still provides more than enough of a viewing angle. The 270mm can almost look into the front passenger window which is completely unnecessary in my opinion. Both mirrors clear the visors.

ah man brings back memories of my high school days in the late 90s early 2000's. everyone had a broadway mirror on their imports lol.

i would put my old broadway mirror on, but i find the auto-dim feature very useful. :(

Never driven with auto dimming mirrors, but I've never even bothered to ever use the manual dimming on the mirror. I've driven with broadway mirrors longer than without them, can't go back lol

This might be a dumb question, but can you flip these up to dim them? It doesn't look like they have a tab, and I would imagine the light refraction only works with a straight mirror, but I'm curious because I've always thought it'd be a good idea to have something like this.

No, the mirror's can't be dimmed, but I've never found glare to be as big of a problem with these mirrors. They also have a tinted mirror made to reduce glare.
