Huh! didn't know that one either...I wonder if that one is on that list of cool hidden features for E53's

Im glad I know now, Thanks Helihover!

Wow! No prob guys. I thought everyone knew about that one:). I think it's in the owners manual.

Awesome hidden feature! Although my 15% tinted windows never really need dimming from the rear view lol!

And good luck with your new whip OP, those slide pins need to be installed dry on the calipers however!

Mark my words...There's ALWAYS some dickhead on the road that'll necessitate auto-dimming mirrors!! lol. But then again 15%?! How the heck do you see anything at night??

Professor, Check the passenger side hood latch...the gap looks a bit funky over the headlight.:thumbup:

I remember having 15% tint on my 78 nova and couldn`t see anything at night backing up and hit a couple cars back in the day :)

Ricky Bobby 11-27-2013 10:19 PM

Ah boys I've had 15% since I started driving ten years ago! You get used to it I assure you and always make sure your reverse lights are bright enough lol!

And S, I agree there is always one asshat that might necessitate auto dimming (or clown nose dimming) mirrors being used, namely the Dodge Ram pnp 6000k halogen headlights and fog lights crowd!

Thanks again, guys, and good eye SND, hadn't noticed that gap. Looks like the driver's side power folding mirror doesn't work, will work on that soon, same for the power telescoping steering. Won't even go near that till spring tho. ;)

ProfessorX5 11-28-2013 01:07 AM

The to-do list thus far:

1. Telescopic steering (I suspect the actuator module, since memory buttons don't do anything, though the power seat works).
2. Driver's side folding mirror
3. Remote unlock doesn't work
4. CCV, jic


While I'm a bit annoyed at the telescope not working (I'm short), I console myself with the fact that the expansion tank, radiator hoses, control arms, disa, and other stuff look new. :)

And oh boy, do I LOVE the sound of the engine when I gun it!

ProfessorX5 11-28-2013 05:49 PM

Did some more snooping in the engine bay, and found some barcodes... radiator and fan are new, as well as the radiator hose and MAS. :)
