2005 BMW M3 Owner Comments

problem #1

M3 6-cyl

The auto-dimming rear view mirrors in 2001-2006 BMW 3 series, and other models are defective. These mirrors leak out the toxic auto-dimming fluid into the car (damaging the interior, and putting the driver/passengers at risk from the chemicals). Not to mention once this happens the mirror is becomes blurry, and hard to see out of (which is a saftey hazard for vehicle operation). My particular car is still under cpo BMW warranty, and I was told the mirror is not covered under warranty, even though its an obvious defect in materials, or design from the manufacturer. Researching the problem on internet forums I've discovered thousands of other owners that have experienced the same problem. This is not a rare occurence, and BMW refuses to acknowledge the scope of problem. We have all been forced to spend $600 for a replacement mirror, that will overtime have the same issue.
