In use my air compressor on the mirrors and trunk latch after I wash it. Works well.

I use my leaf blower on them but even if I stand there for 10 minutes blowing the water out, it will still reliably drip out onto the side of the car when I take that first drive. Adjusting the mirrors inwards or down to give the blower air more space to get in helps a little but it's still not a perfect solution.

Air compressor and bring a microfiber drying towel to pick up the dribbles after a quick 20 minute drive.

I usually open and close all of the doors (and hatch) a good 3 or 4 times before drying. Helps get rid of most of that junk pretty well
