    Hi,

    I have folding mirrors as an extra on my car expecting them to fold on locking however the only fold when I press the button on the door. Can the remote be programmed to auto fold?


    Thanks - Andy's

    Hey Andy,

    You have to press and hold the lock button on the keyfob again after locking the doors, as if you were making open windows do the self enclosure. You should be able to fold the mirrors and lock the doors by holding the door handles. Let me know how you get on

    Thanks for the reply Chooch84, I have tried this before as I thought the same. The windows open and close with the key fob but not the mirrors.

    Hmmm, that is weird. The mirrors should close with the self enclosure when activated. It might be worth refering to the owners manual, if that states the same as I was suggesting, take it back to BMW...

    Remote mirror folding was only done at factory coding on some older models. Now it is an option you pay for, something like £200.
