Knowing how to set your mirrors properly to see your blind spots is essential with the X6. They teach you how to do that with your side view mirrors when you do a PCD. Ever since learning that...

My lame-o X5 E53 produced in 2002 had an electric adjustment! I didn't think that they made anything in the 5+ lines that had manual steering wheel adjustments. Anarchy!

On my E71, it was single step and quiet, but still audible all the time. On my F16, its two-step and almost inaudible. I can only hear it if I'm listening for it.
