I own a 2013 328i Cab with Comfort Access. Is it possible for the side mirrors to close when you lock the car? Obviously vise-versa.

Yes, that feature can be coded, if you have power folding windows to begin with.

Thanks for replying,

I'm new to this...is that coding something I could do or a dealership must do? Car is under warranty.

Check out the coding sub-forum: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=368

Alternatively, you can pay someone on here to remote code functions you want. There's quite a few to enable.

Don't do it, especially with a vert.

The issue will become glaringly apparent when you have the top down, then try to hold the lock button to fold the mirrors.

The windows go down halfway every time and you spend more time trying to get them back up then doing the stupid code in the first place

Yes we tried adjusting the timing but it didn't make a damn bit of difference...

So long as your top is up, the "feature," once coded, works just fine.

That is irritating. If leave the top down I just lock it with the fob.

Why are you holding down the lock button? Shouldn't it be a quick press?

I have it on my vert and never had this problem. When i press the lock button i only hold it for a quick moment then once the mirrors start to close i let go and walk away. When i need to roll the winnows up with it i hold the lock button till the windows roll up then i let go. The only time my windows roll down is when i hold the unlock button. If i want the mirrors to open when unlocking the car i just press the unlock button once and its automatic.

So your either holding the unlock button every time or you didn't realize that you only need to press the unlock button once to have the mirrors move back to normal. If the windows roll down with just 1 press of the unlock button then something else might be wrong.

It happens with I go to lock up and fold the mirrors (lock button hold until mirrors start to fold then let go.)

Try it with the top down and see.

That said, I DO roll the windows up first when the top is down (for a little more added security.) Maybe I can try with the top and windows down.

Yeah i don't have that problem at all. Maybe the sensors with your windows are going bad? I've read on these forums that we have special window sensors that sense when the top is up/down, when the windows roll up/down as well as open and close the door. You'll see malfunctions such as when you put the top down/up windows will randomly roll back up, or down ect...

You might want to see if thats your problem since this doesn't happen with me with my top open or closed. You should video tape your issue and upload it for us that way we can see exactly what its doing. I'm sure that i understand what you saying, but a visual would help a little more.

Don't know guys, I must be not understanding something here...In reading all the posts, , I don't have it "coded" as mentioned. I have tried to close the mirrors with the fob as described. Also with the driver door CA. No dice.

Bottom line...It must be coded to work??

I just recently had this coded (a fellow member on this board did it for me. Wanted to learn how but looked a little too complicated). I absolutely love this feature. However, today I discovered the issue Dark_Knight_335 speaks of!! I had to get back in the car to bring the windows up. Annoying, but still worth it though.

mild hijack for a quick question, is there any way to tell at a glance from pictures on a craigslist listing or something whether or not a car has comfort access? this is with respect to first and second year e90s and 06-07 e60s

or do you have to run the vin/ask the seller to look at the back of the key for the battery door
