Mirrors Folding on Locking?

I have had my F11 525d for a couple of weeks and have more or less figured out how everything works. One thing that I can't figure is how to get the wing mirrors to fold in automatically when I lock the car. Is it possible to do this?

Hold the lock button on the remote for a couple of seconds,, that should do it.

This feature is optional item. Some dealers bundle it but some don't because of profit margin. You better check with your dealer

Would not work on the 2010 M3 I just sold, it was NOT an option, you have to press the button on the door panel.
I don't think it will work on any F10, through the IDrive settings.

Works fine with the lock button on the remote of my f10. It closes / opens the sunroof as well.

Yes if you hold it long enough it will close everything, but it should be programable in IDrive, even my wifes 12K ford does this STD!!! why can't BMW's?.

It is programmable, but not through iDrive.
You need a programming cable and coding.

In the UK this is not a separately specified option; if you have folding mirrors they close by either operating the switch inside the car or by pressing and holding the central button on the key fob. However, you do have to keep it pressed for several seconds before it works.

Yep, this works just fine on my UK F11 520d. Press lock button and hold and they fold, when you unlock they unfold. Different if you press the button on the armrest, where they only unfold when you press the button again. Clever huh?

Not Clever, annoying who want to stand there holding the button?. It should work on one press.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean; it's so frustrating having to keep that button pressed for a few seconds when you could be doing so many other important things .

Thanks all. Pressing the key fob for a few seconds does the trick.

At least there is a way to fold them in at the push of an interior button.

I have another car that I have to run around to manually push in the bloody things!
