lol good to see I'm not the only one! I do it as others have said, easy way to see it's locked.
I've just seen a facelift S3 with the mirrors folded in, he had a black square on the inside edge of the silver bit, so when the mirrors are folder out it would be facing the side window....any ideas what that is???
There is a thread here when some users including myself did a retrofit. Parts cost about £350 from Audi (with discounts) and the guide is simple to do. Just set yourself most of the day to do it slowly.Sorry to hijack but didn't want to start a new thread for a pointless question, did anyone on here get their folding mirrors retrofitted or know a rough price on doing this? I'm jealous I don't have this! Pfl s line if that helps.. thanks in advance

I think i have someone who can get me the parts but if there's a problem il give you a message, thanks mateThe person I got my parts from doesn't have access to this forum I think or can't respond to new PMs (long story) but if you want I can provide his details and you can contact him for a quote.
Secondly, the paranoia in me thought that the amount of times per day I lock and unlock the car, I didn't want to cause any unnecessary wear to the motors. I know they're almost certainly capable of it, but I'm an absolute fruitcake so if I can avoid the worry then I'd rather just leave it! If I need them folded I'll just do it using the switch in the car from now on.
Haha not far off! I'm the guy that if there is a chance something goes wrong, it does!You must be the guy who gets the bus to work and has the 2 year old S3 with 100 miles on the clock
I think new/2017 a1 & s1's now have mirrors fold on lock by default (ours has and some others have also reported this) - even though brochure said otherwise - I think older a1 & s1's as you say don't thoughAudi A1/S1's don't have their mirrors fold on lock by default, same with Q3's, but it can be set via VCDS and is a very popular mod. I had three S1's come to me (all friends) and two of them wanted folding on lock but one did not. When I asked why he said "I like to fold my mirrors when I want, and leaving them out acts as a guide for other drivers not to hit his car". I guess leaving them open means there is more chance of the mirror only being damaged and not the vehicles bodywork etc... makes sense I think.
I myself always have them fold on lock as Heated Auto Dimming Mirror Glass is £260 a side to replace
My left hand /passengers mirror freezes every morning in the cold weather even the drivers side has begun to do so.....l need to get out and push it fully back into the lock position then turn the ignition back on for them to fold down..... Pain in the buttocks but still wouldn't do without them,my second fave option after the pano-roof
