I blocked the sensor but I did not want to disable the feature, I wanted to control it.

I finally came up with this low-tech solution that I made from the lid of a Tic Tac box.

The lid can be opened and closed to unblock and block the sensor.

Thanks. Where's the sensor?

And agreed about the dimming function. Only BMW demands the mirrors dim automatically at night, which drives me nuts, as it makes the mirrors feel pretty much worthless. There's never a time I will want the mirrors to dim so I just need to figure out where it senses it's dark make it stop blocking me from seeing things in the mirrors.
