I have the same issue except it is the passenger side mirror tilts down randomly when I unlock the doors.

Any idea what's causing this?
Is this the Imola Red thing?

turn your power mirror switch in the other direction.

The switch only turns the mirror down when you put the gear in reverse - this is a feature that helps to see the opposite side curb when backing up.

But I do think there is something wrong with the mirror switch, where it does turn this feature when you open the door/car. At least I would start looking there first.

When you get the mirrors and everything set back where you like it, hit the M button on the seat (should light up red), then hit 1. Hit M again and then hit 2.

If the memory presets get cleared out they'll do strange things. They should be moving back to whatever you saved when unlocking, if you have multiple keys it won't necessarily be the first memory position.

If this doesn't fix it there's probably a problem elsewhere.
