    Sorry, but I don't know why you have low res mirrors

    This is my one, and I've never had a mirror issue :-

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <hardware_settings_config version="46">
        <cpu>
            <threadStrategy parallelUpdateRender="true" workerMapFile="system/workerMap4Core.xml" forceFeedbackProcessor="3" dvdStorageProcessor="3" dataSetMonitorProcessor="1" renderProcessor="0" updateProcessor="2" fileStreamProcessor="3" />
        </cpu>
        <graphics_card update="true">
            <directx forcedx10="false" />
            <resolution width="1920" height="1080" aspect="normal" fullscreen="true" vsync="1" multisampling="8f16xeqaa" oldWidth="800" oldHeight="600">
                <refreshRate rate="100" />
            </resolution>
            <gamma level="1.0" />
            <textures lod="0" />
        </graphics_card>
        <shadows enabled="true" size="2048" maskQuality="2" />
        <headlights headlightQuality="2" />
        <particles enabled="true" wind="true" />
        <crowd enabled="true" detail="1" />
        <cloth enabled="true" detail="1" />
        <groundcover mode="blended" clutter="true" />
        <objects lod="1.5" maxlod="0" />
        <trees lod="1.5" maxlod="0" />
        <vehicles characterQuality="4" lodQuality="3" />
        <envmap faces="6" size="1024" forceBilinear="false" />
        <water update="true" detail="2" />
        <mirrors enabled="true" forceBilinear="true" width="1024" height="256" car_maxlod="1" car_culldist="300.0" />
        <skidmarks enabled="true" />
        <dynamic_ambient_occ enabled="true" />
        <track_reflections enabled="true" />
        <physics environmentalDamage="true" vehicleDamage="true" />
        <motion enabled="true" ip="dbox" port="20777" delay="1" extradata="0" />
        <led_display nativeSupport="true" />
    </hardware_settings_config>

    :thumbsup::thumbsup: Now it works great with <mirrors enabled="true" forceBilinear="true" width="4096" height="1700" car_maxlod="99" car_culldist="9900.0" />! The problem was the hardwaresetting_options file in the system folder!!
