    Does anyone know if it's possible to turn off the automatic mirror folding? It's really annoying..

    Cheers!

    To the best of my knowledge I don't think there is a way to disable it.

    But I'll let others that actually have this feature answer the question.

    Automatic? on the UKDM car you have to do that manually with the button on the FL cars.

    People will pay over the odds to have a automatic feature and you don't want it? :Blink:

    Ha, yeah.. It's not actually that intelligent. Starts unfolding once you turn ignition. If you then turn car on it initially folds, then unfolds again. Then turn off car and go to look at what's behind you before opening your door... no mirror. Personal preference perhaps. I'd far rather have auto-off headlights if they're in the on position, or day light running fog lights, but I don't seem to have those.

    Mate people pay top dollar to get the blue tinted side view mirror in your car we get clear mirrors in the UK. I can't believe you are the first one to dispel his JDM marvel..JK

    If the plug going to the folding mirror motor were removed the mirror would no longer fold. Or possibly remove fuse but this might affect mirror adjustment and heated mirror etc.
