Yeah, 6'2" here also. I too have the seat all the way down and significantly back.

On my truck, when the mirror fell off, I re-located it to a much higher position on the windscreen. *MUCH* better. I totally recommend moving it up but like someone else just said, it never holds quite as well. Before doing that, I turned the mirror over, so the attachment was at the bottom and then adjusted the double hinge thingy to lay the mirror very close to the windshield and up higher. I never use the dimmer dealie anyway so I don't miss that it's now on top .

Does anyone else have problems with the side mirrors blocking your view of things like curbs? I have never driven a car with so little view of the things to your side. Still better than anything else though But the Taurus had bright lights that lit up, on the side of the car, when you activated the blinkers. Totally illuminated the way to the turn you are about to make. I miss that feature, even if I don't miss the car [it's parked at the curb].

Those Mustang side mirrors are huge.

Like Will Smith's ears, they stick out.
