Drivers door mirror?

Post by Melv » 26 May 2015, 00:05

Just registered on this site.Just got my first BMW - 116D (62 plate)

Very happy with the car.Still getting used to it.One quick question.On the drivers side door mirror there is a black line running sort of vertical.I have looked at other BMWs and there also have the same black line.But I don't know what this black line is for.Hope someone can help as it will be appreciated.

To the right of the black line is the blind spot mirror which is angled slightly to show if a vehicle is next to you whilst they are overtaking

To the left of the line is the same as any other mirror
