Tilt? Not again.

If your right side mirror ever tilted in reverse, it must be possesed because that feature is not present on US models.

Wrong list

Posted without noticing that you are asking a question about a CLK on the W204 list for some reason.

Regardless, that failure is caused by the driver's seat memory module and was very common on W203s, as just one example. If you are out of warranty, you are looking at a big bill.

Tilt

WTF, exactly. Does she live in the US or Canada? To have right mirror tilt, the car must have seat memory and that feature is not available on cars built for the US market. Canadian cars are different.

that's crazy, yeah i noticed she didn't have memory settings when i picked up the car from her. i also noticed she doesn't have a PDC or a back up camera yet it plays dvd in park. Someone screwed up in their logistics meeting.

For the demographic the car is aimed at (females) PDC should be a must.

Canadian spec do not have tilt mirror when backing (reverse) up.
Seat memory is part of the package (option)

BMW calls it PDC: Park Distance Control I think. MB is Parktronic.

I distinctly remember my dealer demo had tilt down passenger side mirror. I even complained that the feature on my TL was driver-programmable.

Read somewhere on this forum that there's a flash to get this onto the W204.

Peabers, I just noticed (or really paid attention) that there is a cutout on the drivers door where I would assume that the keyless entry would be. How many things do you think are actually prewired into the car but are "currently unavailable" in the US?

When it gets cold in Canada and I do wash my car very frequently to get the salt spray off, these features, folding mirrors and tip down rear view mirror will freeze up. I park the car in a heated garage and it will work again. So during the coldest winter months, I turn both features off, to protect the gears.
