Yeah...the C Pillar is a bit too big, plus the butt is kinda high...can't blame you.

I think IPD used to sell those European wide angle side mirrors.

It took a while for me to get used to. I have to slightly rotate my shoulders a little bit. Those wide angle mirrors should help but you'll lose your auto dimming capability.

I think so. I believe that there is a P/N from Volvo for wide angle side mirrors...I just checked out the IPD one, doesn't look too shabby, but like I said, you'll lose your auto dimming (don't really need it if you have your car tinted)
