In the world of side mirrors, it's easy to get lost when you want to find the best pair for your vehicle. With more and more of them being made electric, the list of features grows longer day by day, and that's not an exaggeration. But what's important to consider when searching for a pair for your Renault Master are certain features that will provide the safest and most convenient driving experience. Although they are not alone, it's important that you focus on them the most. For the safe and convenient travels make sure you install side mirrors that tick all the below mentioned boxes. Here we go.
Especially with third-generation Master vans the need for a blind spot has become an important necessity and one that will help you navigate through traffic more easily. A Renault Master mirror will oftentimes feature a separate blind spot mirror placed on the lower part and that is for a good reason. Not only will you be able to monitor traffic better, but a blind spot will help make parking way easier, especially in parallel parking. A blind spot mirror decreases the chances of an accident when switching lanes or making a sharp turn due to the extra visibility which helps quite a lot when children are playing around.
Although a Reanult master mirror with a built-in indicator sure looks fancy, you shouldn't aim for that whatsoever. These type of side mirrors are also called directional, which some times come with a puddle light or heating option in order to prevent the mirrors from fogging up. Although these mirrors are used by people who do a lot of towing it is best that you go for the most safety-oriented mirrors since newer Master van models are getting bigger and bigger.
This may not be as much of a safety feature but if you want a uniform look for your Master you can do so by getting a colour matching pair of mirrors. The colour code on Renault vehicles can be found on the side door jamb of either the passenger or driver side. In case you are not able to find a colour matching Renault Master mirror you can buy a regular one and then have it painted with the same exact colour, just make sure it's primed.
The Rest of The Deal
No matter if you are getting a pair of mirrors or just one side, it's important that you get the right one or two. The mirror on the driver's side needs to be an Offset (O/S) or also known as RH and the mirror for the passenger's side needs to be a Near Side (MN/S) which is also called LH. Unless you have an older Master model go for electric mirrors since the vehicle supports them - you certainly don't want to miss out on the convenience of electric mirrors.
