    I just tinted my windows (30-15) at Auto-Links in Toronto (who are beyond amazing, for the record)

    Since I left their shop, I noticed that my mirrors remain dimmed at all times. (No, it's not the tint giving me this illusion)

    Any idea what this could be? The is a 2016 MS HW2.

    Thanks!

    Did they tint your windshield?

    They didn't. I actually just figured it out!

    I have a parking pass hanging from the mirror and I had rotated it in such way that it blocks the sensors that are now behind the rear view mirror on the driver side. I removed the parking pass and the mirrors are now back to normal! Phew!
