    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP Saphirre Black

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default Electric fold in mirrors.. possible?

    Coming from a Vectra B to a C, it strikes me that these wing mirrors are a dam site more vunerable than the B's blended items, more so as we all know the C is a wider car anyway!

    Now my Boss has a 55 reg saab, this has mirrors which fold in on locking the doors etc... being a vauxhall component sharer, got me thinking, can this be done on the C? Has it been done... or is it already available on higher spec models?

    If so, has anyone got part numbers? or ideas please... i really would do this as my 1st mod!

    Cheers for that! More complex than i thought! The cost doesnt worry me too much, although it is steep! Mind i did one of the first Vectra B xenon conversions about 7 years ago at cost of £700... so i like to do daft OE things!!

    The problem is, im clueless on checking what parts i have, and what parts i need! Has anyone done it recently who is willing to share any gen please? pretty please??

    What C have you got? Depending on spec/year you may only need to replace one door module. When I did mine with it being a Signum Elite it had the higher spec DDM due to the extra features the car has so I 'only' needed to get a different passenger door module (PDM), the new housings and a Tech 2 to get it working.

    you are not the only one wanting that mod... i have to replace the lot to have the stuff.. (ddm, pdm, door wiring ect) that without the dimming mirror would be about 400£ where i reuse the most parts possible.

    I don't see the point of them unless you park on a tight street. I guess you must park on the road overnight? I follow a guy to work most mornings and he folds his in along the country lane even though it is wide enough for 2 cars just.

    Keep an eye out on Ebay, even save the search as I am sure they come up on there and on here. Good luck Mike.

    You'd be surprised how useful they are once you have them - parking on streets to avoid people bashing them, parking in car parks when you've no choice but to park next to another car, finding yourself on a narrow road with a truck/van coming the other way - quick push on the button and your mirrors are in - plus other situations.
