Auto dimming side mirror too dark?

Forgetting about if your windows are tinted because my opinion is even with the windows down...does anyone else find the driver's side auto dimming side mirror to be really really dark at night? I get that it aids to reduce glare, but I find it gets so dark I can barely see anything.

The rear view mirror inside does the same but it doesn't seem to get as dark or bother me as much.

Add in any level of tint and the side mirror is more dangerous than it is helpful in my opinion. Again, something I wish I could turn off in iDrive.

I have a 2020 330i loaner for the moment and I was noticing today that the side and rear-view mirrors are way too dark. And this loaner has no extra tinting.

Yes. It is darker than the other cars. And what's worse is the "bezel" around it (the part on the mirror edges that doesn't dim) is worse. I don't notice it in my Audis. But in this car, I definitely do.
