I've had a look in the manual and the way it reads by implication, is you push the mirror switch on the door panel to the position of the drivers side mirror, engage reverse and the passenger side mirror should dip. However, there is that pesky little '*' after the pre-amble which means 'depending on country etc.'. This doesn't explain why yours did dip then has stopped though. I'm pretty certain the folding mirrors have this facility 'built in' but there is no function within any of the i drive to cancel/activate the dipping.

I'm a bit confused TBH now. May be worth playing with your switch though.
I have had a good fiddle and it works when the switch is on the drivers side despite not having the folding stuff
Going out with a BAN now that the forum has become Chav Ville. Fair well the early adopters.
