Folding door mirrors

I've got a US-market 2020 X2 and there's an odd omission. The mirrors will fold in using a button on the door trim. However, they won't fold in automatically when locking the vehicle like other cars.

Is this a US-market thing? Does anyone know a way to change this so the they auto-fold? I can't see a way to do this in iDrive.

Bimmercode will let you code in this optional behavior.

On the key fob when you are really close to the car press and hold the lock button for about 5 seconds and it will fold in. You can also do this via the door handles. No need for Coding it.

But Bimmercode will do it without any intervention should someone want it that way, and it's such a great tool for so many other reasons I have no reason not to suggest it.

If only we could program the HUD to display the tachometer and/or gear number.

Heck, I'd pay money to get the HUD to show CarPlay supplied navigation, that would be higher at least on my list

Bimmercode

Thanks, everyone, that's excellent news. Holding down the keyfob seems such an oddly retro step vs the automated folding that some non-US markets must have.

I didn't know about Bimmercode and this looks an excellent app. I live in the Facebook world so much of the time. One forgets the value of older platforms like forums such as this - it's a super helpful resource.

Thanks again,

Steve

I think that makes sense, but would this be a problem in colder climates in winter, if ice was on the mirror when it automatically closed. I have no idea, as I just use the button, but I was wondering about that issue?

Yes and no, most folks have it work fine, but a few have had issues with ice encrusted mirrors trying to fold in or out.
Personally I don't need the mirrors folded, but to each their own.

I used to have my e60 coded to fold automatically.. but after a few of those winter ugly days and me freaking out with all the cracks and pops.. I only fold them manually with the button or the key when I'm parking.

Comfort access allows you to lock the door without mirrors folding.
