    Folding Mirrors

    just a quick question,

    does anyone know if there is a way of making the electronic folding mirrors fold in automatically when the car is locked/unlocked?

    im guessing there isnt going to be a easy way of doing it incase you open them into a wall etc so vauxhall have made it an optionbut just incase i thought id ask as i keep forgetting to press the button before i get out..

    i couldnt imagine it mate, the mk5 is computer controlled i dont think it would let you have the mirrors fold in then it is locked/unlocked although i agree it would be very useful.
    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.

    didnt think it would be thought id ask, but i would have thought they would make it so if you hold the button to lock it they go in or something but doesnt look like it,

    thanks anyway,

    From what I saw on a new shape Leon the other day mate, it didnt unfold/fold automatically when locked/unlocked

    Pressume its a safety feature! Wish the mk4 had these!

    makes sense it doesn't do it automatically i guess, just need to get into the habit pressing the button before i get out,

    yep doesnt do anything, although it didnt even close the windows either (like i should) but it doesnt do the mirrors for sure,
