    Can you fold the mirrors while you're driving? Had to get through a tight spot today so wanted to fold the mirrors in to give a bit more room, but they wouldnf fold in -- should they? I've only ever tried it on the ML when parked up, but I used to fold em in the old S class all the time when...

    Did the RAC fit the right battery? Did you have the problem with the old battery as well, or just since the new one was fitted?
