Don't like dimming mirrors inside or out on any car. They only serve to obfuscate what's behind me. Sadly BMW's system does not appear to have an off/on switch like some brands. Nothing worse, to me, than glancing at a mirror and the cars behind me appear to be in a haze when it's a clear night. Never been able to figure out the purpose of dimming mirrors beyond making it impossible to spot the headlight patterns of specific makes/silhouette details of cars.

Oh and never tint my windows. No need in San Diego.
