Thanks for the replies. Thats one of the best things about the E32, no matter how long you have it for, there is always something new to learn about it.

Yes, they are automatic and turn on when the mirror surface temperature falls below 5 deg Cel.

If you remove the glass from the fixture ... (email if you need instructions, it is very easily done with a flat head very slim and long screwdriver) .... you will find two connectors on the back of the glass that lead to heating elements embedded into the back of the mirror.

Some cheap-skates replace these mirrors with non-heated ones to save a few bucks, so that may be the case with your passenger side mirror. Check to see.
