The mirror reflection is indeed caused by the window glass. So if you need a clear view behind you you must lower it.

At night the whole dashboard reflects in the drivers window.

I think it depends on how you sit. I have the seat all the way back and down. I do not see the dashboard reflection at all. I have noticed the mirror reflection, however. Thanks to this thread!

I don't understand what you're referring to here.

I notice the dash lights reflected at the top of the windshield when driving at night.

What's the mirror reflection about? Rear view or side mirrors?

Maybe I don't want to know...I never noticed the dash reflection until reading about it here.

Man, I though twice before asking.

It's like that picture where you only see the pretty young woman.
Then some jerk points out the old hag.

Ruined forever.

Okay, so I took my car in for service today and had a diesel loaner. For the first time, I noticed the air vent reflection in the side view mirror.

Guess what I cannot unsee in my own car now.

*sigh*

The reflection is actually on the window, it just covers where the mirror is. This one honestly doesn't bug me, the one that I notice more often is seeing the entire surround of the HUD on top of the dash reflected on the windshield.

Damnit!!! I see it right now in my 2019 sig (took me a few minutes to find it, but, I can never find Waldo either).

Gimme 10 min and I’ll forget about it.

What were we talking about?

We were talking about how the older you get, the more you reflect.
Or the more you vent.

Or sometimes both at the same time.

My wife would agree, I think I’m still in venting stage. Although, we went out for a drink earlier and now I’m reflecting.

Age has done me well. Things I vent about I usually forget and then I reflect once I remember. Not a bad way to live.

I'm right there with you.

I don't have neighbors around me who have kids, so I drive around and when I see some outside playing I yell "Get off your yard!" It helps relieve stress. And I set an example of what they have to look forward to when they get old.
 
As I recline the seat backand pla7 with the heighht, the image from the dash on the windshield disappears with the exception of the screen.
