I can't speak for the x1, but in my previous car the tint did not have any real affect on the auto dimming features in the mirrors. The sensors will still sense light, tint just lets less light through, so it will dim darker the brighter it thinks the light is, in many cases with tint you won't need it to dim, but when you do need it it will dim fine.
