Is it me or am I wrong. Doesn't the driver's side mirror is electrochomatic like your rearview mirror on '02 IS300?

According to the manual it is. But you couldn't prove it by me. I've tried to tell but haven't made sure yet. Not that much traffic around here at night.

Also the mirror is supposed to have a rain sheeting film on it. It's supposed to be cleaned with soap and water if you get hot wax or whatever on it.

You mean all the mirrors have rain sheeting action on it?
So...I shouldn't put any rain repellant on it like RAINX or AQUA PEL?

Well...I guess I check with the dealer to fix it.

According to my manual it does. It's a film coating.

I don't know why it would, unless someone scraped it off. It just needs to be cleaned sometimes.

If you look closely you shuld be able to see the edges of the film.
