    I've become more and more annoyed by the fact that cars behind me appear so much further behind me in the virtual mirror than they actually are, and just did some googling and found that it should be possible to adjust the FOV for the virtual mirror seperatly in iRacing.
    So, what kind of FOV do you guys run on the virtual mirror? Same as the rest of the game?

    It is adjustable in the graphics options. I leave it at default though.

    Yup, in the graphics menu. I run it at something like 110 (objects in mirror are closer than they appear ;) ) to see cars running next to me.

    i'm not just tooting the iRacing horn, but its little features like this that really make me appreciate what iRacing has to offer. Not all games even have a virtual mirror, Hell GRID Autosport doesn't even have proper working real mirrors, but even sims that do have virtual mirrors don't have adjustable FOV. It really is a nice touch and I love that you have the option to customize it for your own personal preference.

    Don't forget the ability to adjust the in car mirrors, which also reflect your own car meaning the rear view is realistically obstructed by your rear wing. It definitely helps that they've had so much time to polish these features, and hopefully others reach the same level of maturity.

    I use the same FOV for the mirrors as my in-game FOV. (64 on a 27in)

    Found the setting yesterday and set it at 60 (same as I use for my monitor), will have to run a race to test, just did some "offline" practice yesterday and that didn't tell me much :p

    It's one of the black boxes, I think it's called graphics options or something similar.
