    Does anyone else have issues with their mirrors? My rear view mirror switches over like it should but neither of my side mirrors change any longer. It's going in to the SC in two weeks for this and a few other things but wanted to see if this was normal behavior. For reference I have a p85 3
    2013 rwd.

    No I haven't had that problem, but they should be able to fix the issue for you.

    I actually have the reverse problem -- side mirrors switch over but not rear view.

    0th. WTF stupid forum? I'm typing then it jumps up a line, and I can never get it back down. Whatever. Mine goes in the 10th. The rearview doesn't dim all the time or enough, but my sides are dark enough...
    Ha! Mine goes in the 1

    Mine haven't worked for about two years. They darkening part just faded over about a six month period. Fortunately, the hatch screen works perfectly to block the light from the person behind me and my left hand works for the wing mirror.

    My girl goes in for a laundry list this being one of them. I hope they're able to either fix or replace them. Starting to wonder what's left of my original car.

    I had a problem with the rear view mirror not dimming. Tesla service replaced it last year and it has been fine since.

    Apparently the passenger side mirror was malfunctioning causing them both to not work. Passenger side replaced and now they're both working!
