I've noticed quite a few factory mirrors on cars that have seemingly aero treatments...





- but I've also wondered why one couldn't build a mirror with multiple panes, vertically aligned like vertical blinds so they appear as one solid surface to the driver but allow air to pass between them. Wouldn't that reduce the pressure differential between the nose and the wake of the mirror and effectively reduce drag?
