    Recently bought a 330ci and have an issue with one of the mirrors. Both mirrors fold fine but only the right one adjusts. Even if the switch is to the left, the right one moves!

  8. E46 sits lower on the right hand side. The designed for left hand drive myth

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So I've read up on multiple forums about this myth that the reason e46s (among others) sit lower on the right is that the the car was designed to have say a 80-90kg person sat on the left which would balance out the car.
