Useful option for some, but not really top of the options list to me. My last 3 cars have had folding mirrors and I can count on one hand how many times I used them.
It's all down to personal preference and, for me, they're pretty high on the list after dynamic options such as engine, transmission and suspension variations.
Apart from negotiating my garage entrance, it's now become routine for me to flick the fold switch every time I park the car - ok, I know I can do that with the key, but I prefer using the switch to obviate the worst-case scenario of someone parking close enough to result in mirror contact when they automatically deploy on unlocking.
If you want to call that obsessive or paranoid, then I willingly stand guilty as charged .
