Well both of my cracked mirror casings were replaced by Bluebell BMW last week along with a under-bonnet bracket that had started to rust (not good sign at 12 months old!)

Now all perfect so if yours are cracked get in ouch with the dealers and get them replaced

Take it back. Your dealer should replace it under warranty. I had the same problem on both sides and it was fixed without any hesitation.

Given the number of incidents, also this issue was included in the 1M issues log sticky (see sub bullet point #3):

Is this happening to non-power mirrors also?

Just curious? I don't think I have any cracks but mine are power folding.

Never mind! Both of mine cracked!

If it cracks again, just take back to the dealer to replace again. Obviously it's a problem that BMW have world wide with these mirrors and therefore they are required to replace them or come up with a solution to stop it happening.

Good Luck!

The folding bit of the 1M mirrors is from the M3, the cracking part however i think is exclusive for e82 and found on factory 1Ms and other e82 M mirror retrofits.

For those who are interested to see if we can find a possible cause and effect, if your mirror has cracked, please list if you have folding mirrors or not (included in either options 313 and 430)
