I picked up my 2005 X3 3.0I on Dec 1st. I brought to car wash for first time on last Sunday. I folded my automatic folding mirrors for first time before entering car wash, everything worked fine. After exiting car wash, I pressed button to unfold and they opened up way beyond the normal open position and had to fold back by hand? Is this normal?

Apparently.

BMWs had auto folding since 1998 with the E38 and later in 2001 with the E39 and E46 but in the UK as option.

I think Auto folding didn't fully come to the USA until the X5 1st gen later years model and the X3 in '04/'05.

Basically the US Spec SUVs got it first and the the sedans later on. But it's been around for over a decade.
