Anyone know how easy this would be to achieve.
I've thought about this a few times but never got round to doing it.

There are infact two different versions of the electronics involved depending on if you car has the memory seat function.

If you have this then the mirrors are controlled via the front electric window motors that have a built in computer.
Since these controllers already close the windows automatically when the car is locked Renault could have easily included a mirror fold function by suitable firmware.
