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 .
