1. motorised folding mirror
2. the folding/unfolding button on your headlamp console

TIA.

Yeah I did folding mirrors about a year ago (previous car, yet to install them on the current car). You need the mirror units themselves, the button, and the model specific folding mirrors cable (for ease of installation).

I will be re-fitting my mirrors soon, and I have a plan for the installation which involves me making a wiring harness to go between what I have and what the mirror needs.

of course :)

I already have the mirrors, they're just in the wrong colour now, MBenzNL has offered to swap the housings, so next time I'm in NL I will do so! :D

In the meantime there is no reason why I can't prepare all the wiring for them I suppose...

So if you're car has folding mirrors already on it, why do you need mirrors from Steve?:confused:

I'm sure we can make room for your Nick, no excuses. Better had enrole though as I think it's getting tight.

If you want stealership prices,
Mirrors are about a grand, wiring is £30, button is £10 and my wiring harness bits would come to about another £10 or something. I recommend that you ask the forum member Steve (MBenzNL) ( s_krabbenborg@hotmail.com ), he probably has some mirrors in stock, he can wire them for you so they plug into your existing cables (still need to run wires for indicating/folding/dimming where applicable) and he will want about 1/3 of the price :) .
