That's brilliant! One of the things I liked about the 407 was the fact that the retracting mirrors were hooked into the ignition.
The only down-side is if you ever fit extension mirrors for towing. I know from experience (and habit) that if you retract the mirrors with these fitted, the extension mirror bodies clunk rather viciously against the bodywork. I always got away without causing any damage, but I'm sure it would have left a scratch sooner or later.
I might still have a go at doing this though, as long as I can find a discrete place to put a switch to disable the automatic retraction when needed.
Nice one, Franz! Thanks for posting this!
