Check with your local stealer. They may be able to retrofit the folding mirrors.....

You need to do i manually they don't fit retro folding mirrors. Mine has them.
Look for the button on the Door window mount, you may have missed it.

Retrofitting may not even be an option as the wire harnesses often are specific to the option packages. If you don't have the mirrors than it's likely that you don't have a Premium package.

Isn't that a standard feature?
I think it is standard all models if I am not mistaken.

Premium package is needed to get the power folding mirrors.
