So i got it done through a shop here. Also its hardwired and does not use factory switch. I think its kinda too expensive to buy all the stuff just for folding mirrors. So the shop installed a relay and made it fold when i shut the car unfold when i start the car. I paid around $400 including mirrors. Let me know if anyones interested im going to wrap the window moldings
Which i hve to remove the mirrors and door panel. Ill take some pic of all the relays and switches and how its wired

Here is the video of how the mirror works

I would be very interested in something like this. Between my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, and my F-150 pickup with towing mirrors, I have a difficult time getting both vehicles in and out of my standard 2 car garage. The size of the mirrors, along with how far they extend out, is the reason why. I have to come in, and exit at an angle so as not to hit the passenger side mirror against the side of the garage where the door is. My wife is afraid to even attempt this. So I have to always back the car in and out for her. This would eliminate that.

Can the vehicle be started and driven with the mirrors in the folded position? (For entry and exiting the garage). Also, can the mirrors fold independently of each other? Or do they both work together? I would not attempt doing this myself. Can the dealer install something like this? $400 including the mirrors does not seem unreasonable. Are you satisfied with the workmanship? Thanks for posting this.

Yes.. if you watch the video there is a button on top of the mirror control switch. If i turn it off the mirror will fold and wont unfold until i turn the switch back on. No, the mirror is not independent they fold and unfold together. Dealer will not do this type of mod. If you read the whole post there are couple of options you can do this. Mine is just another way of getting this done. I was really lucky enough to find used working mirrors for cheap. If you buy brand new mirrors they'll probably run you about $500 per side. Search junk yards or Buy aftermarket mirrors which would run you about $200 per side. Just make sure they list power folding on the description. A1auto sells a set. Theres another site but cant remember.

I just looked on their site and the price now is $299.

I guess they figure if you have the $$$ to burn on the insanely expensive mirrors, an extra $100 is nothing....

I disagree though, at least for the mirrors you are getting something substantial, with wires, motors, electrochromic dimming, etc... All this device does is writes to the body controller...

I understand they need to get the money back on development time but this seems a bit extreme...

I wonder if the TAZER could eventually have this feature added to it. Its expensive but at least it does more than one thing...
