I turned mine off shortly after I bought the car to avoid it breaking and having to fix it. Just slide the mirror button on the driver's side door to the middle and that disables the tilting feature.

It's funny what is considered "significant" in the south compared to the northeast. I know one thing - this winter has beaten me down - I'm ready to go south.

Grabbed a replacement on eBay a few years ago - haven't used it since. Nice that it's there - if it's dark and I drop something under the seat.

04 330i Auto-dim mirror failure

I didn't want to take a chance on a used mirror - my luck, the same thing would happen again in a year. For $99 I'll take a shot at it.

04 330i Auto-dim mirror failure

I shipped mine out today - so I'll report back when completed. 99 bucks seems like a good deal.
