Auto dimming mirrors on all the time

Seems my 3LR has all mirrors dimmed at night. Its so dim its dangerous as I cant see much from any mirror even when no cars are behind me. I cant see idiots on pushbikes or other cars behind me in blind spot nearly had a crash when someone was undertaking me when I was pulling into the near side.

I would have thought the sensor would pick up dazzling headlights from the rear and then turn down.

Can they be turned off

Just bought a Model 3 and am having the same problem: dark (useless) side mirrors, dark rear view mirror, and dark steering wheel orientation. Feeling unsafe for night drivin.
