I have opened and closed the auto trunk manually many times like when detailing or changing yearly sticker on plate, etc. I have had no problems. You should be fine.

Don't feel chicken. You opened it up in the best place in the world---the 'track'. I loved that I thought I heard your turn signal clicking in the second video.

Above posters are correct about mirrors.
Speeds are:
You can fold in -- up to 15mph/20km/h
Folded mirror automatically unfolds at 25mph/40km/h
No mention in manual on how to override.
