I've been lurking for about a month, got my 2002 E55 today, black/black. I sold my 2003 Z06 50th aniversary, was a great car, just needed more room since my only other vehicle is a Ducati Monster :)

Had a question already :) Was the passenger mirror lowering function when you put the car in reverse and option or did it apply to all e55's as I notice mine doesn't lower when I put the car in reverse.

Love the car, its got a lot of kick especially on the highway :) I've just ordered the flat hood emblem but don't do much other than tint, audio and maybe suspension later, I love the stock monoblock wheels.

Passenger mirror should drop when put into reverse on all 210 bodied cars.

Congrstulations & Welcome to the Board realein! Post some pix when you get a chance.

You need to reprogram your right side mirror to go down when put in reverse to do so check your owners manual for instructions on how to set it. Pls. take time to complete your profile

Take care & enjoy your new ride,
JOE55

Congratulations:thumbsup:

Set the mirror in park for normal rear view you like, then put car (running) in to reverse and readjust mirror for the lower position you like, now push selector switch to drivers side mirror. Drive car, right mirror will slowly return to your normal adjusted position. Then try reverse, it should move quicker to down position than it moves when returning to normal.

doesn't the tilt mirror convenience feature activate only if the mirror switch is
in the passenger side position? that is, if you leave the switch in driver side
adjust/position, the convenience feature will not work. is my memory correct?

OK raymond, you are probably younger, smarter, better looking, weigh less and have more money than I. But one thing is for sure, your memory is much better too.:eek:

Joe55 - I will just need to wash it first, we have the pollen "drifts" here in georgia :)

It stock and that darn wheel thread has me looking at wheels, I want something with a very deep dish, but still classy...

Cheers,
Grant
