I haven't noticed this phenomenon on my 1er (probably because I don't drive it as often as I would like), but regularly get it in my other cars. I think it is due to how upright you sit in the car on any given occasion. I find I also often need to adjust the mirror sideways as well.

If anything, I find my rear view mirror overly tight and hard to adjust..

Yes not only my posture, but I seem to lean more to one side or the other at different times, hence the need to adjust the mirror sideways as well as up and down. Maybe it's to do with our mood or something at the time:iono:

I see a PhD thesis in this one:smile:

If you have manual seats and use the driver's seat to access the back often, the seat never goes back to the same position. This may be the cause also. I hate having to readjust the seat each time I get stuff out of the back!

Didn't know that! I was wondering why sometimes my seat felt a little closer to the peddles... guess that solves the mystery!
