near side mirror angling down in reverse

Post by mr c » Tue Sep 25, 2018 8:21 pm

Hi guys read in my hand book that on certain models the near side door mirror angles down when enguageing reverse, I have this on my Alpha Spider and find it very useful.
Was wondering has any body got this on there car?
I have a #1 limited edition which is based on the S line so should have most things on there? probably needs coding by Audi to activate it

Hi... You'll find this was discussed in a previous post...
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=666&p=3298&hilit=mi ... erse#p3298

With the folding mirror option... the mirror adjuster control needs to have the passenger mirror selected. That mirror will automatically dip when reversing. You can adjust the angle... when changed out of reverse it will revert back.

Right had another go still no joy so now my question is has anyone got the reverse dipping mirror who Hasn’t got folding mirrors? as I haven’t got folding mirrors so maybe that’s why it doesn’t work just a stab in the dark

I dont have folding mirrors and it doesnt dip for me, . I dont think it will unless you have the folding mirrors. I am onto my 4th Audi now and never spec folding mirrors and none have ever dipped.

You can actually activate this by using the Carista dongle and App. It won’t give you folding mirrors as you don’t physically have the motors there to fold them but it will give you the dip when put in reverse. I just activated mine. If you need any help on how to do this or any info on Carista then let me know. It is super easy and Carista also gives you some other little modifications too that are nice.
