Mirror image

Hi all,

I have a query regarding the wing mirrors on a 146. When I bought my car, the mirrors were non standard Halfords specials and the previous owner had not even seen fit to match them very well! I have bought a pair from a motor factor that fit perfectly. My question is regarding the finish. It appears that the passenger side one has the "far away" blind spot type effect, where cars appear further away than they actually are, whereas the driver side one is a normal mirror. Is this right? Would someone kindly have a look at their mirrors and tell me what they should look like? Should they both be "blind spot" type or normal anti dazzle with the blue finish?

Thank you in advance.

Yeah, mine has titanium ionised blue tinted magnifing ones (or something like that). I don't like them, huge blind spots over right shoulder.
Couldn't get any in Halfords, as I didn't have the measurements... and Alfa 145/146 isn't a car they seem to like a lot... :-(
