03 745Li mirrors

Hey all I just have a quick question bout the side mirrors on 745 li. When you go on reverse aren't the suppose to go down or it's something that you can turn on turn off? Or was it an option on the car? And how do you fold the mirrors? I will really appreciate any information. Thank you for your time

I dont think it was an option till 06 or 07...

and you can fold the mirrors manually on a 745. it takes quite a bit of power with your hand, but it can be done. again, I also believe you could electronically fold the mirrors in an 06 or 07

dont know but that's what I think

Hello - I believe the function is turned on when the mirror selection switch (on the door handle of the driver's side) is switched to the left. When it's switched to the right this disables the feature and the mirror wont adjust down.

I hope this helps!
