Passenger door mirror park assist

Post by sundodger » Sun Mar 12, 2017 1:55 pm

Don't know if this is a generally known thing or not ? Please forgive my ignorance if it is.
Had to reverse the car up the drive & her indoors had been fiddling with the mirrors. Adjusted drivers side mirror, then put in reverse...When I did this, noticed that the passenger side mirror dipped down, giving a clear view of the ground ! Never noticed this before, as not touched door mirrors since orig adjustment. It only happens when mirror adjustment is set to drivers side & returns to normal when taken out of reverse...quite handy for parking !

Hi sundodger

Yes, you're correct in relation to this being standard as soon as I got in ours that was the first thing I turned off and many others on here have done the same with their cars irrespective of 1 or 2 series.

This is part of the folding mirrors option and very useful, set it to drivers side to activate and set it the other way to deactivate.
