Panoramic rear view mirrors......

Looking to get a wide angle mirror for the E46, saw a couple at some shows recently and got to sit in the cars and they do seem to make a difference and I think they look cool too lol Just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with them and what brands you all prefer. I'd rather stay away from the clip over the OEM mirror style and go for one that mounts where the sun visors are. The cars I was in had wink mirrors but in doing some searching people have reported quality issues with them and the panes falling out, also pricing for them seems to be all over the place. On Bimmerworld they run around $50 but I saw them at Pep Boys for $25?

I am also not looking for a lecture on how you don't need this because with properly adjusted mirrors you can see everything, I know that and have all mine properly adjusted. Since I use the car around town when belted in with the harnesses it's sometimes a little tough to check all around and I like the idea of increased situational awareness that this can provide.
