Too bad on the folding idea. Vman's inside side mirrors look good - they take advantage of the modern gargantuan "A" pillars, and highlight the blind spot perhaps better than regular side mirrors.

Those wheel covers look GREAT! I would still advocate for wheel skirts for the rear wheels; the advancing wheel top PUMPS air into the car's slipstream, adding perhaps 20% to the air disturbed by the car. I don't have quick access to any data on drag reduction, however.

Exactly how did you fasten the wheel cover / pizza pans on? I see a single center fastener...
