is there a link to the 7th Gen mirror mod?Gents I am no hot modder, but I know some guys on the 7th Gen have had success with using Acura motors and such to make our Accord mirrors fold....
Give it a shot. Seize the day and what not.
The only reason Honda does not offer this feature is because it's a feature usually found only in luxury cars.Power folding mirrors is one feature that I wish Honda would include on their cars. There's absolutely no reason to have the mirrors sticking out when the car is parked and unoccupied, especially in garages. Not only do you gain extra clearance between cars and walls, but also less chance of them being broken.
Since Honda has already provided manual folding mirrors, it seems such an easy step for them to make the mirrors power folding. JMHO.
That sounds reasonable except at one time so were power windows, locks, seats, steering, brakes, etc. only found on luxury cars. Now, however, most of these features are standard on basic cars.The only reason Honda does not offer this feature is because it's a feature usually found only in luxury cars.
The way everyone in NYC double parks, and the tight squeeze it usually is, I am constantly pulling the mirror in. It would be great to have the ability to retract the mirror on the passenger side too... IMO, This feature is way above what Honda would do for the Accord.
You need to think bigger - the RLX has them. I think the Canadian TLX may have them as an option as well.Every car manufacturer has to decide what features they want to install to stay competitive and still keep the price reasonable. The Honda Crosstour, which is being discontinued, has motorized folding mirrors. The Honda body shop has loaned me an Acura RDX to drive while they repair my car again and it doesn't have power folding mirrors.
