    It depends on the equipment level on the Golf.

    I know on Skoda it is tied to having electric memory seats, I'm not sure if it's the same on the A3. Last time I looked at my car to see if it could be coded my door controllers were not listed in VCDS. Perhaps send them an email if you are a VCDS owner and ask.

    Think you need memory seats for this.

    i think it's lame that it isn't a standard feature - even fairly modestly specced Golfs have it

    My brothers e46 msport cabby has memory seats and that reverse mirror tilt thing... ill be honest with you its only good for reversing round a corner. other than that its absolutely useless i had to reverse it off the drive and i use the mirrors to judge distance from the pillar on my driveway wall and i have to basically lay on the passenger seat because it wont adjust whilst in reverse. how useless and over rated

    On my E46 you could deactivate this by putting the mirror switch in the position as if you were going to alter the drivers side mirror.

    BMW 8 series had this feature as well.

    I don't understand why this feature needs electric drivers seat with memory.
    Shame, would really love this feature. I do it manually all the time when parking in work.
