There was an article on this subject in the latest Roundel, and you are right. Like a lot of others, I have not been using the outside mirrors correctly for years now, particularly the passenger's side mirror.

Most people have them adjusted way too far inwards. Like the article said, if you can come even close to seeing your outside door handles in the mirrors, they are adjusted too far inwards.

I experimented with the method that you describe, and found that it really does work! No blind spots.

You can do a little testing on the road to see that it works, and fine tune the adjustment.

It was a great help to me, esp. in the MB, which has much larger blind spots than the more upright and "glassy" cars that I am used to driving.
