2009 BMW 128i 55,000 mi,
The passenger side mirror once extended beyond the fully open position. However, it was not necessary to visit the dealer to have this corrected; I simply pressed the button again to fold the mirror and then once more to open it, and this time it stopped at the proper position. This has happened only once.
