Power rear view mirror

I read a brochure of the 2005 cadi xlr on the net and it said in the specs that this car has Power Folding Mirrors. I need to know how to fold them, or did they stop that in 2006?

Welcome!

To answer your question the XLR and XLR-V never had power folding mirrors from 2004--2009

Bad info!,,

The mirrors are power, and the housings are folding - but manually!

I think this button is on an export model. The owner does not say where they live. My 06 does not have this button. Doug-j

So could we add this feature to our cars then if it's equipped with it already?

Could be a Canadian thing?
I'm from Canada and its a Canadian car so maybe thats it?
Having said that I searched the Canadian Autotrader and none of the cars there have it either?
Incidentally, its VIN# 00075 so maybe just on early production models and they deleted the option on later cars?
