auto-dim mirrors + tinted windows?

^ as the title states, anyone have trouble driving with tinted windows with the auto-dim mirrors? or is there any way to turn off the dimming feature?

I usually go 75mph and I get people in trucks and SUV's high-beaming me all the time on the 210

How dark is your tint? I was thinking about doing 20-35 since it seems like its dark enough to reduce a good amount of heat but...I duno lol.

u see a "dot looking" thing on your inside mirror? cover up that area by over lapping with aftermarket inside mirror. but, if you do that, then your side mirrors won't dim out either.
inside and side mirrors are connected.

ohh thanks! I've actually tried putting on a broadway mirror on the rear view mirror before but it was too big so I guess I'll try cutting out a small piece of electrical tape and see. I always wondered what that random thing was there for xD
