    Hi all,
    Can someone please help me with the following mod "Audi A3 2L TDI 2010 - Electric Folding Mirrors MOD"

    wanted to know what i need to make this happen and what codeing also, and what parts i can keep from my current mirrors,

    would love to be able to fold my mirrors in when i get to work as people walk between the cars and knock them.

    What's the price on those? Are they a straight swap or is there more to it? Thanks

    You would need the folding mirror bases, and then compatible door modules that allow folding, also the folding mirror switch. The 2010 cars sometimes already have the correct door modules so you may be lucky there.
    if you get the same year mirror base as the one on your car now you can reuse your mirror glass and the coloured mirror cap/cover

    Bases from audi are around the £350 mark and the switch is around £25.
    best way to find out what module you have is to scan the car with VCDS and see what part number you have on the driver and passenger side door modules. the module will be something like 9P0 959 801 for drivers side and 802 for passenger but it will have a letter on the end...
    on a 2010 car i think its the module ending in P or Q that support the folding. I know on a K rev it shows the coding for it but it doesnt actually support it.

    As Ash rightly said, K module doesn't support it. Only module that I know of for 2010 plus that supports folding is the 'M' module.

    Not really, as etka will show only the latest version that would be fitted should you have a faulty one, so your current one maybe basic level.

    As advised you need to scan the module 1st.
