Change Dimming on Rearview/Exterior Mirrors

I have always thought that since i tinted my windows the mirrors wont dim as much when someone with bright lights is behind me to the point where at a stop light i have to fold my mirrors so its not in my face so I was doing some coding tonight and after looking over some of the F10 functions i figured out how to make the interior rearview and the external mirrors fully dim when you have tinted windows. When you tint the windows the rearview mirror light sensor doesnt get as much light therefore it doesnt darken the mirrors as much as it would with no tint but with the settings below the sensor will take your window tint into account which will allow your mirrors to darken more. this should work on F8x/F3x.
