I noticed that in the newer M Benz the mirrors auto-fold every time you switch the engine off. Nice feature if you are parking at shopping malls and don't want people bumping into your mirrors walking between cars.

My garage is huge, and if you're parking in a spot where you have to fold your mirrors in, it's probably too tight to park there anyway, not to mention getting in and out of the vehicle!

My garage is not huge. It was built in 1950, way, way, way before anyone thought up the SUV. Without the folding mirrors, I'd have to leave Mr. Silverfish on the driveway, which isn't acceptable.

Also, as mentioned above, it's nice to pull them in at the mall to keep people from bumping into them when they walk between the rows of cars.

Mine doesn't have this feature but I wouldn't want the mirrors to auto-fold everytime. A button to power-fold them in is better.

I believe they come as part of the premium package.I've had them for 2 years and maybe used them twice.My mirrors are still fine except for the time when the carwash guys tried to fold them in by hand.It took a while to get them back in sync.Another headache you don't need.Unless ofcause you can't get into your garage,I'd spend the bucks on something else.
