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.
The sensor is at the top center of the rear view mirror. If you look closely (at least on the E9x) you will see a small silvery circle about 1/8" in diameter.
