91,92 Rear view mirror issue for me

I didn't really know where to put this so it's here. My rear view mirror view is blocked by my center brake light on my 92. The light bolts to the underside of the headliner just like all 92's. At a quarter mile back or so it will block all the lanes of a freeway behind me. It is an issue for emergency vehicles and just general ease of use of the mirror. I'm just curious if anyone else has a problem with this, it seems to effect any size driver as it's the mirror to brakelight geometry that is the issue, and anyone who adjusts the mirror to see will be looking through the brake light. For my own use I have bought a the older rear spoiler for a 3rd gen and I'm wiring it and removing the factory one. I've never seen any threads on this and it annoy's me greatly. Anybody else?

Use your side mirrors, if the vehicle has a LH and RH side mirror you don't even need the rear view. Or just take the button off and move it down the glass a little ways will give you a different angle looking backwards
