    Hey guys I need your help for a retrofit.
    I have a 2012 8p sportback with electrical and defrosting mirrors.
    I would like the auto folding function too.
    Am I correct that I need a pair of motors plus a new switch on drivers door for that to work?
    If yes does any one know the part numbers and possibly where to source them from?

    If that’s not the case what would it take ?
    Also I understand there is some coding involved.i do have a cable so a walkthrough or pointers would be appreciated!

    mirror bases, new switch, switch light, new trim and more than likely door controllers

    dont be tempted by second hand as the bases are different between 3dr 5dr and cabrio, so i would avoid unless you can verify the vehicle they came off

    Have a read of my build thread, I cover the parts on the first page. As you have a 2012 model, the last of the 8P then it’s nightly likely you already have the correct motors, you’ll just need the folding bases. Use your glass and mirror covers. The switch and trim pieces are cheap from Audi. I bought my bases from Audi, they were £15 more than ECP and far better quality.

    Search for *** on Facebook. Genuine parts people.

    Check your door controllers end with either one off these letters ( J , M ,P )(
    Part No SW: 8P0 959 801 P HW: 8P0 959 801 P )
    if not you will need to source . I have 2 spare M ones if you need PM me.

    It might be worth trying to source yourself the Auto folding mirrors before you purchase the other parts
