Thank you Marti!
I have seen this description in various forms, but have been a bit reluctant to pry on the mirror glass ~ seems like an invitation to a mirror replacement! Maybe I should have a replacement glass on hand...
I don't know if this vehicle is equipped with memory mirror / canting mirror option. It does have memory seats, but there are so many option packages and configurations, it's difficult to tell.
This is my first BMW. I have owned other German autos and love them! Is interesting how BMW seems to hold so much information close to their chest, making it difficult to work on the vehicle, or I just don't know where to look for it. I run across this more and more frequently with newer vehicles and equipment (have been a mechanic for 34 years by trade). With the advent of melding computers and mechanical, it seems to have increased the complexity 10 fold, especially with BUS and sending multiple signals across the same wires.
My 325i had 24,000 miles on it when I purchased it this last May. It is a beautiful car (!) but has a few 'issues', which I aim to correct myself without emptying my wallet at the dealership! Was disappointed to have spent the money I did in July (SES light with error codes O2 sensors reversed). I know there is an update (which they charged me for) but 1 month later, it started doing it again ~ hence my wariness of dealerships.
So, enough of my rambling and thank you so much for your input!
I wish you the very best and will talk with you sometime soon!
