Do your mirrors look like this?

Both of my mirrors don't line up. Is this normal?

Mine look like that. How do they get "over extended"?

I have folded them in and out a bunch of times to try to make them line up with no luck. I've tried to manually force them also and they don't really move. Should I visit the dealership?

Mine lines up, yours looks like it hasn't unfolded all the way.

Maybe it's the power folding option?

Mine line up as well. You should have the dealer fix it.

One of mine was perfect and one was even more misaligned than yours. I had it resolved at the dealer last month and now it's about 90% right (still slightly off but you have to stare and have OCD to notice now.)

Mine line up perfectly, but I remember a similar issue in my previous car (2006 e90 330i), also with power folding. I was gonna take it to the dealer but ended up manually forcing the mirror in place WHILE folding and unfolding. After that, I rarely used the folding option. It appears that the mirrors can misalign with use. Rarely use it on my M3 now. This is my experience and NOT a recommendation. Take the car to the dealer.

the dealership should be able to get it fixed. My 335's doors weren't perfectly flush and they fixed them.

My driver-side mirror is a tiny bit like that, passenger side lines up better. But meh, I got over that pretty quickly after first noticing.
