    Happened before warranty expired however I didn't take in until 3 days after expiration. BMW would not honor warrantyy - Chapman BMW Chandler - and charged me for replacement mirror which is $1200. I did negotiate a lower price of $700.

    I had the same problem with the mirror folding outwards. The entire mirror was replaced under warranty a year ago and it has worked fine since.

    Mirror (passenger) does not line up properly and therefore it's hard for to see out of. BMW ordered another mirror to replace.
