Yep, on a standard car, and assuming that you fold the mirrors in every time you park (I reckon I do it about 90% of the time) then it is a race between which would fail first: The switch or the motors.
But I suppose if you make this mod, at least you only have to worry about the motors.
But the motors are the expensive part in relation to the switch. I know which part I'd rather replace.
I only ever fold my mirrors if I need to, like if Im in a car park with cars parked close or in a dodgy area (not that folding my mirrors will stop someone wanting to rip one off if they wish to do so
Incidently the new Citroen C5's (a bloke at work has one) fold their mirrors when you lock the car, or take the key out of the ignition, cant quite remember which
