Passenger mirror lowers when reversing?

I noticed when I first got the car that the passenger side mirror automatically lowers to point at the curb when the transmission is put into reverse (5-speed manual). Then randomly last week it stopped doing it? What gives? I don't really need this, but I just want to see if this is a setting, or if my car is already pooping out on me.

Ideas?

I just saw another post on this. Sorry guys, I feel like a schmuck. It looks like I just need to click the mirror selector to the passenger side. Hmm, let's go try it out....to be continued...

It does that so you can see the curb and not run over it.

Still wondering

if anyone knows how to switch this on - my UK spec 330i Touring doesn't do this, and it'd be quite handy to help save the 17" alloys!

Mr. Roger, sir. May I suggest calling the BMW dealer with your VIN number? Also check your owners manual. (Although I admit, it's much more fun to have the Bimmerwerkz guys tell us how to do it!)

I just now tried it. On my car the mirror selector has to be on the driver's side (left for US cars).
