trunk lid and side view mirror dead spot

I own the MKS 09 and find the trunk lid does not open high enough to put in large packages and it makes it difficult to load luggage. It won't take some luggage and I have to put it on the back seat. I shouldn't take much to raise the lid and make the opening a little larger.

Also, the mirror and the area where it is attached block the drivers view. I nearly ran into a narrow road divider twice.
