Settle an argument....I'll listen to the forum. 03-e46

My son says his DRIVER's side mirror quit working when in reverse. Only his passenger side mirror adjusts down now. I say its always been the passenger side ONLY that goes down and not both, when in reverse. My e93 and e60 is passenger side only. What, say you about the e46?

I say passenger side only - He says both

And to what end would they design the driver's mirror to pivot down? You can look out the window and see the curb.

Ha! He's about 5-10 years past Pokemon. I'm trying to bet his college tuition on this. (Wishful thinking).

You are speaking about college tuition and say he's 5-10 years past Pokeman? Sounds like he's smarter than many other "kids", but...

Passenger side only! This is actually in the owners manual.
