For both my Mera and Fiero, I have the clip-on RAZO brand convex mirrors. They are great, especially with the Mera. I use the 10.6" wide model, available almost anywhere...e-bay, amazon, some performance shops, etc. Just google it. They are fantastic for those blind spots. I put the larger models on our SUVs. I had a friend borrow my SUV when his car was in the shop, and he liked it so much he bought them for all of his cars too.
I contemplated on using the Wink with the Mera, but then I would lose functionality of my sunvisors (or possibly even have to remove them). And the mirrors on the Wink are just plain mirrors, not tinted or anything. Okay for daytime driving, but at night, one will probably have 3-4 lanes worth of headlights shooting right back at you. With the clip-on RAZO, at least you can easily pull on the mirror button to cut the glare. And the best part of the RAZO...takes about a full 10 seconds to install.

Have one in my AE86 Toyota and absolutely love it. I ordered another 5-panel one to fit inside my ChumpCar race car, but it didn't quite fit within the bounds of the rollcage, so it's just sitting around.

They seem popular among the Honda Civic crowd(I had to google what they were, and a million Civic forums popped up). I don't track my car(it is a pile) and I drive at night 5 days a week, so it wouldn't work for me. Plus, since I am only 22, my neck still swivels.
I also remember the school bus had one when I was a kid.

They remove any and all blind spots. You can almost see down the sides of the car with it. They also keep you facing front and keeps you from looking down and left up right then far right and down just to see around the rear of the car. Look up left slide right then back to the road for full awareness.
