E60 2006 to 2007 Changes..

Did the Premium Package on the 2006 MY include BOTH interior and exterior auto-dimming mirrors? Apparently, the 2007 MY Premium Package ONLY include interior auto-dimming mirror. Could someone please confirm. Thanks.

Here is the package summary

I got the attached file from this forum that indicates the outside autodimming mirrors are included.

This is why I asked...

From the BMWNA site, I see the following under OPTION PACKAGES:

Optional Packages

Cold Weather Package
3-stage heated front seats

3-stage heated rear seats12

High-pressure headlight cleaning system

Heated steering wheel

Premium Package
Dakota leather upholstery and door trim

Auto-dimming inside rear-view mirror

Integrated 3-button Universal garage-door opener

Lighting Package

This seems to specifically limit the auto dimming mirror to the inside, whereas the Ordering Guide still shows both item 430 and 431 as part of the Premium Package. What gives?

Yes, I know but . . .

Yes, but the 2006 packages were described the same way and the exterior autodimming
mirrors were included.

See that is my problem. I don't think it was (described the same way). Certainly, I recall reading somewhere that the exterior mirrors also were auto-dim and at that point deciding to go with the Premium Package because of that. I have auto-dim interior mirror on my current (GM) ride and love it. Any chance you can dig up the 2006 description from somewhere so that I can sleep better at night? Thanks.

FWIW, in the E39, the only car that came with BOTH auto-dimming interor and exteriors mirrors was the M5. Otherwise, the non-M E39s with the Premium Pkg got an auto-dimming interior mirror but no exterior one.

Look at the 530xi comparison in BMWUSA

Go to the BMW USA site and select the 530xi and compare it to the GS300, for example. Scroll down until you get to the exterior auto-dimming mirrors and it indicates the GS has them as standard and the 530xi is optional. Could be that the site is wrong but this is what I find now. I'll keep searching.

OK, Now you can sleep!

Attached is a copy of my 530xi order from 2/24/06 for the MY07.
It clearly indicates that BOTH the interior and exterior auto-dimming mirrors are included in the Premium package!
