Hi guys, has anyone got the folding mirror package with their A3 ? Reason I ask, is that I'm stil debating between an A3 SB and the new Golf GTD (when it's available to configure at the end of this month).
However due to a narrow pathway at the side of my garage, folding mirrors is preferable and I have them on my current Scirocco. On the Rocco they fold by pivoting though about 90° to lie quite flat against the windows, and certainly saves a good few inches.
However on the new Golf, I see it's like the BMW 3 series, where as they fold they swing upwards, and don't really seem to save much space at all. Are the A3's mirrors like this (anyone have a photo of them folded), or do they just pivot like the Rocco ?
Oh, and whilst I'm at it, is it possible to fold them and open them automatically with the remote key when locking and unlocking the car ? I know the new Golf does this, but one of the frustrations of the Rocco, is that the mirrors can only be folded using the button inside the cabin not with the key.
