Side Mirror Garage
Is there any sensor I can install that would beep if the side mirrors are coming too close to contacting the garage?

Backing out slowly and checking your side view mirror is all that's needed. Make sure you straighten out your wheels once you're parked.
You can park farther from the side... Attach some pool noodles to force you away from the wall a bit more can help but it isn't a audible tool.

edit to add explanation:
The reason I ask this: many years ago, I suspended a brightly coloured tennis ball to touch precisely the centre of the windshield to help my wife ensure that her vehicle has adequate room on both sides and also that she stops before hitting the rear wall of the garage. I once asked her if she wanted me to remove it as I wasn't sure she really needed it. Her response was "hell no". She ALWAYS noses into the garage but because she has parked with appropriate room on both sides, she has no trouble reversing out of the garage. I would have to rethink this if she ever decided to switch it up and reverse into the garage.
