Why are there brownish stains around the edges of my 1994 530i's sideview mirror lenses? If replace the mirror lenses how can I prevent this from happening again?

regards,

I have this on my mirror too. (very little and does not bother me). Still the answer to the question is. There is a special paint put on the glass and that makes it a mirror. As the mirror ages out in bad weather (cold and hot) that paint on the back starts peeling off. That looks like stain. Dunno how to prevent that. May be parking in the garage or covering the car will help.
