In Reply to: automatic antiglare mirrors and BMW child car seat posted by Gordon on July 08, 2000 at 09:03:32:

While I don't have the exterior anti-glare mirrors, I did drive a Cadillac Deville last week which had the rear-view anti-glare mirror and it was horribly distorted and blurry. That tells me that there could be a technology difference between bimmer's interior and exterior mirrors.


: Hi there all,

: I am new to this site and to the 523iA SE series which I am a recent new proud owner in Hong Kong....and love it.

: Firstly I am considering buying the BMW Child Car seat that they advertise. It is the Junior Car Seat 1 for my little toddler that takes kids from 9kg up. I wondered whether any of you have bought one and what is the safety rating of this seat ie approved? I tried purchasing it thru friends in Canada as it might probably be cheaper but was told that BMW Canada do not carry it and wondered whether it did not meet Canadian safety standards.

: Secondly my BMW has those automatic antiglare interior and exterior mirrors. My concern is with regards to the exterior mirrors in that when it darkens and esp at night, I see slightly double lights from car headlamps and traffic lights and the sharpness of the overall view is reduced, drivers mirror more than passengers mirror. The interior rearview mirror is fine. So is this a normal characterictic of the electrochromic antiglare property of these mirrors?

: Thanks in advance.

: Gordon
