    Yep.. but not electronic.. the method is wind down the window, and yank the mirror til it turns on its mount /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have auto folding wing mirrors, not standard though. I bought the parts from VAG parts (about £360ish), and after going insane trying to work out the wiring I had an auto electrician fit them for £70.

    Those RS6 rims in your signature look awesome mike, can you tell me if they are 18" or 19" and whether your car is lowered or not?
