I currently have the regular power folding and heated mirrors, and the channel between the windows on the driver's door blocks the very outside part in my driving position. I am currently looking to buy a new ProMaster and a lot of them have the wide mirrors and I'm wondering if that channel will block more of my view of the mirror?

Its irritating that both my mirrors are partially blocked by window frames. Seems that was not considered by designers because there is space for a minor tweak that would fix that regardless of how tall you are. Don't know if the wide mirrors would be better but they are butt ugly.

My ProMaster came with wide mirrors and I was annoyed that the additional width of the left mirror was mostly blocked by the window channel. I was also nervous about hitting something with the mirrors and I didn't really need the extra width, so I switched to standard mirrors. Your seat position will affect which part of the mirror is blocked, but I think that part of the wide mirror will be blocked for a person of any size. I like my standard mirrors.

When switching from wide to standard mirrors, were you able to get the power features (adjustment, heat, power fold-in) working OK? Is the chassis pre-wired for both types, and it's just plug-and-play, or you needed to add a harness(es)? Was there any dealer programming involved?

Power Adjust and Heat work fine on the new mirrors. I didn't have Fold to begin with. I spent a lot of time online figuring out the correct mirror part numbers to buy, so that I would get the functions I wanted. I don't think the vehicle is wired for any functions that were not originally available. (Different mirrors have slightly different harnesses.) If you have the correct mirror, it is plug-and-play; no programming required. I think I spent less than an hour on each mirror swap. Some of the wires were a little awkward to reach/detach/re-connect, but it wasn't too bad. I broke a latch on one harness, but, otherwise, it went well.
