Mein Auto: 2013 X3 35i
I have the same problem on my 2013. My vehicle has been in service two times for this issue. First they replaced the rearview mirror because the side mirrors weren't dimming at all. When I still complained, the dealer brought in an engineer who said BMW changed the programming for 2013 since people were complaining that the mirrors got too dark. It is really annoying but they said not enough people were complaining to warrant a fix. My 2012 X3 loaner worked a lot better. From experience, the mirrors will only darken when you have a motorcycle or a vehicle with high beams directly behind you. Glad I came across this thread.
