When my 328i was in for service I got a 528i as a loaner. Although I wouldn't have thought the mirrors would help much during parking - I was wrong. The high rear deck lids on these cars make it difficult sometimes and the mirrors help.
Of course, it depends on the parking conditions. Most of the time they aren't needed.
