not an option in the UK sadly, it was available in various other MK4 platform cars... do a search there are many posts on this topic.

It can be added at a cost???!

sdesailly Your car will only have the switch fitted and nothing else like the window winder motors or mirror assemblies that are required I have a GT TDI that is fitted with only the switch its only a different type of miror switch perhaps the factory was in short supply of the correct switches and fitted the slightly different one. The good side of this is that if you ever want to add the feature it will only cost you about ?460 as you won't need to buy the switch

Out in Japan folding wing mirrors are a must for the tight gaps and parking bays. Saw a MKIV out here which had both mirrors folded, so it must be an option over here, and their right hand drive.

I didn't get the chance to have a nosey at the mirror switch of the MKIV over here, but will with the next one I see.

Walking back from the office this evening, I saw 2 MK4 golfs and 1 estate all with both mirrors folded in, I tried have a good look round one of them, but just couldn't see any other buttons on the drivers door.

It's to much of a coincidence for 3 MK4 drivers to always get out the car and push the mirrors in.

I will make it my mission this weekend to find the local VW dealer to investigate further, and hopefully be able to report back with photo's, videos, part numbers and prices.

Watch this thread.

P.S Just found this on the Awesone GTI site - AutoWindow Reflex model.

why do you need 2 window motors i heard this somewhere else and didnt understand why, any ideas

How many door mirrors do you have? May be I should have spelt that "doh" or have I missed something here [^]?

You'll probably find that the motor on the window regualtor also controls the wing mirrors.

Built in to your window motor is a relay and control module that controls the mirror

How they work

Sitting in car not moving you can fold and unfold the mirror

Driving along you can?t fold mirror unless you are doing less than 5 mph

Driving along and you notice your mirror are folded in you can unfold them
