New Owner Question. Purpose of line at driver's side mirror?

Hi guys! My 2013 coupe v6 is only 4 days old. I'm still familiarizing myself with the car's features.

One of my question is, what's the purpose of the line at the driver's side view mirror?

It is to give a different mirror angle (the left bit of the mirror is at a different angle vs the main part). In theory, it's supposed to get rid of the driver side blindspot. In practice, it's up to the driver to utilize it. It takes a bit of getting used to; this mirror design has been spreading to most new Honda and Acura products.

As said before, it just sets a boundary between different 'mirrors'. I got used to it on my first test drive, and I use it a lot. I still check over my shoulder always.

It seems odd at first and many don't seem to care for it. After living with it for a bit I grew to like it.

And I never check over my shoulder other than as necessary on a ramp merge. That's what proper and properly set mirrors are for and these are pretty much the best I've come across yet.

I think Honda might do away with the split mirror, I (along with others) received a survey/questioner asking if I would be willing to purchase a solid mirror + how much I would be willing to pay for it.

I do not like that split mirror. It was actually a distraction for me. I had wished it wasn't there. Then eventually my brain and eyes got used to not seeing it at all. Thank goodness!

I don't like the split mirror. I sometimes see a vehicle in the outer "split" and for a split second I think it's in the lane next to me....prompting concern....

I might get used to it I suppose.....

BTW.....I don't understand the propensity of various posters here to immediately castigate someone for posting instead of reading the manual. Of course it's good to read the manual.....but it is more often than not useful to post the question here anyway....because others get to read the question and post their comments.

If we all "read the f'ing manual".....then what's the point of the forum; anyway?

oh please...the reason is the board gets diluted with crap that is basic and in the manual....we are here to talk about problems, mods, situations about the operation and a thousand other things THAT ARE NOT IN THE MANUAL.

Enuf of this "if we all read the manual there would be nothing to post":
