Since picking up my coupe I have had problems with the power fold mirror on the drivers side. The mirror folds In perfectly but when opening stops 5/6mm short so throwing off the view through the mirror. The passenger side is fine.
The car has been back with the dealer some 5 times since the end of Nov and had both the mirror unit and control unit replaced as well as any number of adjustments.
Latest time they conducted a number of tests which were reported to BMW. Just waiting now for a fix............
Still no resolution. Emailed Mini UK to advise them both on the issue and my deteriorating patience. Got a response saying that the dealer had requested assistance from Mini technical managers and once the issue had been assessed a fix would be communicatd to me via the dealer.
Update today. Still no fix.
Apparently mini UK are close to a fix which may involve a redesign of the mirror housing - they are being a bit coy but there seems to be a small number of cars with this issue.
I have the same issue with my 2011 R56 MCS on drivers side sometimes. Closing and reopening fixes it but obviously if this remains as a long term problem I'll seek to get it fixed properly under warranty.
