    Does anyone have the exact measurement? I've found 75.7'' reported as the width, but I don't know if that includes the mirrors or not, and if not, how much more to add to the width wrt to pulling into a garage.

    Try here, mirrors would add maybe 5-6 inches per side if extended. 2-4 if folded in?

    I have 7 feet 5 inches to pull into my individual garage. It's 1.5'' to 2'' wider once inside, so opening doors is no problem, but the garage door part is only 7' 5'' across to the plastic flaps that hang off the sides.

    I understand Wikipedia says the car is 6 feet and 3.7 inches, but you can't just add the actual mirror length as the mirros are not mounted on the widest part of the car where the 75.7'' measurement is from. The widest part is the rear and front fenders, but the mirrors are mounted several inches inwards from the car's widest part, perhaps as much as 4 inches in. Thus the mirror tips may only stick out 2'' extra on each side from the hips of the car and you only need to add 4'' total to accomodate the mirrors when pulling in. I don't understand why this exact width including mirrors extended is so harder to find online.

    Regardless, I guess I will be fine as 6 ft and 3.7'' + 4''-12'' will still fit, but it will become uncomfortably close on the latter end of that range.

    Perhaps someone with a 360 could measure how much the mirrors stick out from the widest part of the car, or better yet, just properly measure mirror tip to mirror tip :).

    If I was at home I would help you buddy, helping my elderly Mother pass out Halloween candy tonight. Hit me up tomorrow if you still need it.

    Ok with mirrors out we measured 84 inches, or 7ft. wide.

    With mirrors folded in it is 72 inches, or 6ft. wide.
