Or something not calibrated correctly. The post above about coding with 3 adjustments probably affects inside and outside mirrors (but would be great if it is only for the outside). If it affects all mirrors, and if the setting is on the lightest by default, maybe going to the middle setting would make the outside mirrors dim enough (just a guess). I cannot tell what setting above is the default. Will have to wait until someone tries it. The other thing is to push the service manager to contact BMW support/engineering and at least get their take on it.

I'll likely find a fix on the forum before the manufacturer even acknowledges the fault.
Noka is right... If the interior mirror dims the sideview mirrors should too. Likely bmw saved a nickel on some component creating the problem.
