The 8th generation Impala has very ugly side view mirrors in my opinion. They are triangular shaped and it appeared GM was trying to style them but failed. Plus the car is big and side small mirrors just look goofy. Its one of the few exterior details I don't like about this Impala. On the 7th generation the side view mirrors were huge and it made changing lanes easy. I have owned both a 7th and 8th generation Impala so I know. The 8th generation should have had big side mirrors that folded in. The only thing I like about the small mirrors is that its easier parking next to posts/poles.
