My 04 BMW m3

Hi. I just got a bmw m3. 133,000 miles. Got the car inspected and got the green light. Just some minor stuff need to be fixed
The rear view mirror got fluid in it that I could see. Sunshade off track, and reverse tilt and lights don't work. Other than that the engine is healthy. Lots of new parts from previous owner. New clutch,thermostat, coolant hoses, fuel pump,sending unit,fuel filter, motor mounts, belts, belt tensioner,,flywheel,front pads and rotors, valve cover gasket, spark plugs. All this,done within 2 years ago.

Cool. I will give it a try. Another problem with the rear view mirror is that it feels loose, meaning every time I go over a bump the mirror moves.

Well Im starting to get the reverse light issue sorted out, So I changed the blown fuse for the reverse light, still no reverse light or tilt, I check the harness for the trunk, the previous owner fixed about 5-7 broken wires. So I figure the last thing to change is the reverse light switch on the transmission.
