The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

Rearview Mirror

The driver side outside mirror on my 645 is dark all the time and doesn't auto dim. Appears it went into the dim mode and stayed there. Has anyone had this problem and any way to fix it other than replacing the mirror?

Thanks!!

I had the opposite problem with my rear view mirror. They have a gel in the glass which changes colour when a electrical current is passed through them and they do fail. Good luck but I suspect you need a new glass.

Thanks!! I'm hoping just the glass can be replaced without the entire mirror.
