Phil: when you mentioned blind spots, I went back to the pics to see if he'd deleted his mirrors. Looks like he added smaller ones, but moved them half way back to the end of the door!

Maybe because he's forced to drive with his seat reclined for headroom, and that put his eyes too far away from the original mirrors?

Also bears mentioning: his CdA is probably only better with the top up. Al fresco, it all goes down the drain! (Though still better than original.)
