I didn't even know there were different mirror options. Mine dim and can fold in towards the car. The knob has three switches. One for selecting which mirror to control and one to fold the mirrors in.

As for parking sensors, they beep. Nothing comes up on the screen, as the camera is only in the rear and there is no need for a rear view if you are driving forward.

USA. Its probably a standard feature.

In UK it is an extra (chargeable) option. It think it cost me an extra GBP £300.00 or so.

Better check in Oz if the standard spec includes it, or if it is an option, in which case its too late.

It's an option in OZ.
If you ordered it I would check that it was fitted.

I dont think any of the USA cars have folding mirrors...at least mine does not and it was not an option. All my other Audis have had this option, however.

In Korea it's standard. The R8 has many options that other cars have and should have been standard or has been left out entirely. :mad:

Ooops, sorry, mine do have the fold away feature. I was thinking of the "auto down" feature when going into reverse that all my other Audi's have that the R8 does not.

That's the complaint for most of us the mirror doesn't dip when we reverse.

sorry but not sure mine even fold.

which position do you have the knob to make this happen? I've tried every combination and nothing!

there are 4 marks around the knob :

a line at 12 oclock
left mirror / right mirror symbols at 8 and 4
and a heated mirror symbol at 6.

I have the full auto dim/lights package, car delivered Jan 08.

the knob does not turn to 12 oclock and seems to do nothing at 6 oclock

mine turns to 12 o'clock as that is how the mirrors are folded in - I used it today.

the heated/folding mirrors were a separate option though from the autodim rear/light package - they were a £475 option on their own.

note the mirrors will not fold if u have switched off the car, which is a pain. there was many times i had to put th key back in to get the mirrors folded.
