the further the mirror sticks out to the side, the farther you see behind you. Its more about being able to see more than style. But the style doesnt hurt. I ordered new mirrors for my Svart before I even got it home. I have the style that looks a lot like the Husqvarna ones and keep mine pointed up, not down. But the above the bar vs below is pure preference. The end mirrors themselves, miles better than stock.
