Thanks again
According to your build sheet (thanks for posting your VIN)...your E53 is optioned with the auto-dimming interior/exterior make sure they have everything hooked up correctly...or have them check to see if the mirror glass was damaged. Don't let the "auto dip" wording throw you off in the OPTION CODE description...somehow BMW has never changed auto dip to auto dim from way back in the early 90s when the rear view mirror actually dipped to prevent glare. EC (electrochromatic) technology soon replaced the motorized auto-dipping rear view mirrors (which were failing at a high rate anyways)...but the description has never changed in BMW nomenclature.

Build sheet info found here:
  • S430A INNEN-/AUSSENSPIEGEL AUT.ABBLENDEND Interior/outside mirror with auto dip
