Having just recently got my 2011 Note N-Tec auto and no owner manual yet- its on order - I wondered if this car has retractable door mirrors please, and if so, what or where is the control for this. I would find this avery useful option forwhen parking up in supermarket or other car parks.


Thanks in advanceforany response (s)

If you have to bring in your wing mirrors to park, it makes me wonder how you're gonna get out the doors.

Doh!
Had a look again at my door mirrors this time with my glasses on! On further inspection and trialI found the mirrors do indeed push-fold inwards manually.Quite made my day !!

Just be grateful it isn't a Merc. My neighbour is a chauffer and drives around his middle-eastern boss's wife in a GL500.
The nearside wing-mirror was damaged beyond repair. I saw the bill for the part - a complete mirror with ground lighting and indicator, heated and folding- (-gulp-) ‚¬2300 and then add fitting!

Merc y me! Now that's one model I won't be thinking of unless maybe I won the lottery one day







Then again, that unbelievableprice would still raise my eyebrows when reaching for my cheque book! Oh, the joys of motoring definitelyleave something to be desired, right?

That reminds me of the time I was driving down Colney Hatch Lane, to the North Circular around London......around 1988.

I was in my Ford Sierra estate, and on my way to Southend for the weekend. With cars parked both sides of the road, is was a bit tight for two way traffic.
Anyway......there was hardly any traffic at the time I was travelling, and I admit I was a bit over the speed limit. A car came up the hill, after pulling out to overtake the parked cars, which didn't leave a lot of room for us to pass. Too late to brake, I breathed in and carried on, and our wing mirrors clipped each other. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw the carnage of the other cars wing mirror, being scattered over the highway under the street lights.

I stopped as soon as I could, and inspected my mirror, and the glass had cracked with a bit of a scuff on paint.
I looked up the road and saw the other driver picking up the pieces. It looked like a german motor.......BMW or a Merc, couldn't see really from a distance.

I got back in my car and cleared off to Southend. I thought......his fault, his mirror, his bits and pieces scattered, and not worth getting into a confrontation over a tit for tat claim.

Southend offered better things than arguing over who's fault it was.


Bought a new glass in Southend on Saturday, and stuck it on.......£3.60, or something like that.


So I doubt it would have been a tit for tat claim.


Sorry to digress, but it brought back a good memory of Southend.
