2006* 325i Same problem. Never coded my key fob to fold in my mirrors, but about a week ago it started folding the mirror out when I hit the unlock on key fob. Since mirror was never folded in, it rotated past the home position. Now every time I unlock the doors, the problem occurs. Spontaneously folds outward while driving as well. Eventually just took the fuse out so the folding motor doesn't work and set the mirror in place manually. -

Same problem described....the 1996 should be listed as 2006. There were no power folding mirrors in 96. Mine is an 06 and there are thousands of reports for this on the bmw related forums. Cause is a failure in the ring that senses the mirror location, its plastic and wears away. Repair is to replace the whole mirror assembly, approximately $800. -
