Anyone experience their side mirrors not folding up?

My passenger side mirror will fold up, but sometimes will not fold down.

From an M5 guideline checklist that I've read, it states that it could be an electrical problem.

My dealer is telling me that they want to replace it, but I'm concerned with the paint matching, and if it is an electrical problem, if there is a simple fix to the problem.

Thanks

Another very common problem. Most people just get out and give the stupid thing a bit of a twist to help it fold. Usually works for another ten movements then it packs up again. Almost everyone has just resigned themselves to live with this minor inconvenience.

If you want to find a permanent solution have a look at this:
