Anyone noticed a blue haze at the bottom of the autodimming mirror when the car gets really hot inside? I have a windshield blind and tinted windows, but i always get that. Does this hurt the lifespan of my autodimming mirror?

Hmm...we've had some pretty hot days here (low-mid 90's) and I haven't noticed that on mine. I'll try to pay better attention on the next few hot days we have and see if mine does it....

I can't say anything about the tC mirror, but I had a similar experience with a mirror in my old Z3. You see, they did not come with the autodimming mirrors. I bought one and fashioned a holder for it. Because I was in a hurry, I wired it so that it was on all the time unless I hit the switch on the bottom side of the mirror. I found that the hazing as you saw it happened more when the mirror was left on over night.

Doubt that helps you, but just wanted to share my experience.

Doh...I've been leaving my mirror on ALL the time.....guess I should start trying to rememeber to turn it off at night (b/c I KNOW I won't think about it during the day....).

Good call for pointing that out....thanks GA tC!
