This has been driving me crazy!!!

My dad's M5 is simple, push the button mirrors fold up. My e46M3, not the case.. i tried to lift them manualy but became afraid when they werent budging and didnt want to pull them right off..

Do M3 mirrors fold up????? and how???

also, my windshield washer sprays kinda low.. how do you adjust them to spray higher??

e46 coupe mirror are delicate. By the way, the casing (pivot hardware) is about $437 installed ....should you break it.

That excludes the color cover and actual mirror!

So turn it counter clockwise to fold. Be gentle!!

The E46 M3 mirrors do fold up, as any E46 mirrors do. If yours don't have the auto-fold option, then just gently turn(not push or pull) your driver's mirror counter-clockwise and the passenger one clockwise.

e46 coupe mirrors are fragile on impact because they fold up.

e46 sedan fold in the direction when a cyclist or person hits your mirror.

yes, they fold up not in.
i folded mine for the first time the other day. 2 hands and gently put force then they swung nicely.
