Retrofitting Electric Folding Function:
It is possible to retrofit the electric folding function if your car does not already have it. Below we explain few options you could do:
1. Purchase the original BMW mirror switch with a folding button and purchase the electric folding mirrors. You will need to have electric seats in the car and Fuse No. 57 present to enable this.
2. Purchase our folding switch harness pack and have an auto electrician to get them wired in
3. Have an auto electrician wire them into the car's ignition so they could fold up and down when you turn the ignition
We recommend either Option 1 or 2 for retrofitting. Please contact us if you need more information.
