Hello everyone!!!

I'm aware of the fact that our mirrors can bend as long as you hold it but, does anyone know how to keep it bent? I changed jobs and the parking space in my new job is very tight. I'm afraid that it might get scratched one of these days. If it is possible please tell me how to do it or I will have to park as far away as possible and walk those extra steps to save my mirrors :D!


Thanks so much!

:dunno:I am not sure it can be locked, but if parking is that tight i would be more worried about dents and body scuffs all over the car.

Well dents always happen...Has already happened 5 times to my car. They are easy to fix IMO but when my friends mirror got "Hit" he had to replace the whole thing. The fact that we have a blinker on the edge of the mirror makes me more worried also.

You should park as far away as possible and walk those extra steps to save your mirrors. If you keep folding the mirror, the spring hook will break.

motorized folding mirrors are possible, though an expensive retrofit. this option
was not really made available for NoAmerican 210s. I believe the mod would
cost about $2k or so and generally done by someone like Steve/Netherlands
(who travels to US to perform these mods), or Houston's Sunil Patel (who used
to be a frequent forum member).

Plan B ^_^

Thank you ever for the replies! I guess I will stick to plan B to save those mirrors :D. I have no problem with doing that as long as I have no need to spend extra money to fix something.
