Strange mirror..left side?

When placing the gear shifter from park to reverse.....oddly, the right-hand door mirror suddenly moved to downward limit.


I switched the mirrors to left...and no similar or any problem! Anyone?

Normal. It's so you can see how close you are to the curb when parking. Rather useful actually.

There`s probably a ton more things you don`t know about....read the E46 Wiki, and read the Owner`s Manual....
