    Hi Guys

    Since my last quest to sort my aircon went so well, i thought i would run this one past you before i start removing the door cards for a look see!

    My 320d hasn't got electrically folding mirrors although they are electric. If i wanted to upgrade to folding ones how hard is it?

    Is it:
    a) The looms all the same? and i just need to add the mirrors and a new switch
    b) Additional wiring in the form of an extra harness that comes from the donor vehicle
    c) So bl££ding difficult you might as well forget it!

    Thanks in anticipation of all your expert comments

    hi , i allso think you need memory seats for this function to work , i do know its not a case of a switch and bolt on the mirrors , the control unit that controls this function is the seat mirror memory control unit , that bolts under the drivers seat as i remember . as this allows three seat settings and allso three door mirror settings to be programmed in by the driver ,
