2003 Infiniti M45 driver mirror is brown compared to a blue passanger mirror. Does anybody know why the driver mirror would have turned brown? It is equiped with the auto dim feature.

Sounds like some replaced one of the mirrors with one from a wrecking yard, paint will fade but not change colors. Auto dim was an option, you might be able to find that out using a VIN decoder or take it to a dealer and see if it is in their data base.

Let me clarify my question. The glass on the driver outside mirror has a brown or goldfish hue where as the passenger outside mirror has a blue hue. It has auto dim option. What could be the cause of the driver outside mirror glass to turn brown in color?

You jogged my memory on a car I bought at an auction, the drivers mirror had a bluish tint to it but the passengers was more towards a brown like your is, after checking it over I found that it had heated mirrors and the passenger side did not work so I ordered another one and it had the blue tint, after taking the old mirror off I took it apart just to see what was inside and you could see where it had overheated the grid and burned the mirror backing, I don't know if this is the same thing but it could be.
