Default Misperception

On S5, itís a misperception that the mirrors stick out far from the body. If you stand at the back of the vehicle and look carefully, you will notice that the mirrors stick out no more than an inch to two inch from the widest part of the body. This is because the mirrors are installed at a narrower part of the body, so even though the mirrors have a certain width to them, the only stick out very slightly past the widest part of the body.

I fitted folding mirrors to my car then coded to auto fold when you lock.
I have found that I donít always want them to fold so you untick the box in MMI butthen tick again to activate.
Itís a pain in the a$$ but I found coding that overcomes this
Now when I lock doors no mirror fold unless I press again or longer hold then they fold, happy now with how they work.

This was done with OBDeleven

With all of the oblivious, obese people and pickup trucks in Texas, having auto-folding mirrors is a great benefit. A guy in a pickup wanted to start a fight with me once at a mall because I stared at his obese wife when she exited their truck and callously smacked my mirror with the door.

In Canada. Folding mirrors were completely reliable last winter. The power windows are completely UNreliable though

A double click or press lock and hold fold them instead of having them fold instantly, correct? I'll give this a shot tonight.

Yes but you need to untick fold mirrors in MMI after coding
