Anyone added power folding mirrors to an 09?

Like the titles says....curious what it would cost to add power folding mirrors to an 09 model. Those of us who park in tight garage spaces wish MBUSA did not delete this from the 09 models!!

Thanks!

I think it was an option that isn't very necessary in the US, and they instead replaced it with the compass and the seats. I think there were also problems with them.

I live in an area where I have to use garages with tiny spaces, and also have to parallel park frequently around town, so it would be really nice to have.

I think it was a corporate move to pull the feature before it hurt the W204 C-Class quality scores. Almost everyone with the feature complains about squeaking, and some times mirrors that don't work etc.... I admit I have a tight two car garage and I use the feature daily

Do the standard 09 mirrors fold manually? That might be a (primitive) option for those tight spaces.

I do like the ability to power-fold my mirrors, but keep the option off. That nice little button works at low speed to fold them when I want them folded.

Having fixed, non-folding, mirrors sucks.

Yup they both squeak at some point but I think they are great. Just need to remember to replace them before warranty is up. Although memory seat is nice too..
