Ok now I'm just getting picky, but does anyone know a way to program a "stop point" for the auto reversing mirror. This is the feature that lowers your passenger mirrior ALL THE WAY DOWN when you put the car in reverse. It goes too low for me to see. I would like it to stop half way down or so. I know you can turn off this feature as well but that takes the fun out of it. I dont think there is a way to do this, but you guys seem to know all sorts of tricks so we will see.

WOW I actually had never heard or noticed that feature. I learn something new everyday. Sorry for the worthless post.

cassidym is an unknown quantity at this point
In order for the passenger side mirror to dip, make sure you have the sideview mirror selector button (at least in the 05 and 05 models) in the up (i.e., selecting the driverside mirror) position. Otherwise, the passenger side mirror won't dip when you shift to reverse.

As for programming it to stop at a certain place before it gets all the way down, the only thing I can think of is to reset the angle of the mirror itself but that would interfere with its primary purpose. Perhaps do this using one of the three memory buttons.

africanrider is on a distinguished road
Not the answer you like but there is really no way to program a stop point...the settings allow you to back up using the curb/pavement(as we call it in Europe and Africa, like boot instead of trunk etc...)

Sorry no better answer fo you buddy

It only works if you have memory seats.

My e39 528 had 3 memory buttons down by the driver's legs on the door which remembered seat, steering wheel, and mirror positions (DAMN I MISS THAT CAR). Use memory position 1 for your normal running. Turn off the auto-tilt mirror function. When you want to tilt it downwards, have memory button 2 set to the same settings for everything as memory 1 except for the mirror you want tilted. This way when you press 2 the only thing that changes is the tilt of your passenger side mirror. Press 1 again and the mirror returns to a more practical angle.
