Default Retrofit folding door mirrors

Hi Guys is it possible to adapt the door mirrors on a 09 pre facelift C30 with auto folding/dimming door and review mirrors?

You can upgrade the internal mirror to the auto dimming one (or auto dimming with compass), as the wiring looM is already there in P1 platform cars, and no ECU programming is needed. Here's a thread, there's a few others too if you search:

If you want to get one new, they're pretty pricey:

Best bet might be to get a second hand one from a breaker's yard or eBay.

I wouldn't be so confident you can upgrade the external mirrors to auto-folding ones.

Cheers mate, just ordered one off ebay for 20.

Shame about the mirrors though, I thought it might be too much of a job to do.
