Great tip !!!!!

Thanks for this really useful tip, every tip helps.

My only disappointment is that it does not work with the Advanced key (Keyless lock / unlock)

What a BUMMER.. If I lock the car from the key fob, the mirrors fold in, but if I lock it by swiping the door handle (keyless lock) then it does not auto fold.

That is a shame.

But thanks for a great tip for those that use the key fob.

Makes you wonder why Audi do not enable all of these useful options (perhaps they don't want to have to repair all of the mirror motors after a few years???)

Cheers

Excellent write up.

Might even invest in VCDS to enable this! Then sell the cable to pay for new mirror motors ;-)

Nice feature this one for me & i like that the mirrors do not unfold when you unlock the car so if you need to go for the car for something, but dont need to start the car, the mirrors stay folded :)
As for the mirror motors i use to fold my mirrors everytime i locked the car anyway & unfolded them when i started the car, so now i dont have to touch the switch at all, so the motors are being used exactly the same amount of times as before this feature was available :D :D
