    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.
