My Coupe and ur-quattro both have miniscule Allen screws to tighten up the 
mirror.  I have to say I haven't ever experienced this problem.

(One day I will have to post some .JPGs of my toolbox.  I have a large ALNICO 
 magnet bolted into the side of a bay in the upper tray, and I collect small
 Allen keys on it.  I find tolerances to be so poor at the bottom end - below 
 4mm - that Imperial keys often fit metric screws better, and vice versa.  I 
 have around 20 Allen keys at 4mm and smaller.)
