I didn’t promise images, but here they are anyway. I really wasn’t making up the reflective nature of my car:
Let’s start with a simple picture of everything in profile. Looks pretty normal from here, right?
Looks like a cloudy day, and there are some trees behind my house, so sayeth the hood of my car.
Here’s the mirror housing. Black things should not reflect color… this is just wrong.
This picture is amusing, if only because I can see my neighbor’s house, their fence, a few bushes next to their house, their driveway, and the mossy bricks next to my driveway.
