Now there's a catalogue! Loved to read it (in the can), thought everything in it was way cool... I ordered a couple of silly things from them that never were as good as their ad, & I never returned the items. A big win for J.C. Whitney.

...and anyway... back then, there was way too many things for Jeeps (when only crazy ex military guys had army surplus ones) and Motorcycles in the book... I wonder how curb feelers would look on the 211... or a naked pin-up steering wheel knob. hmmmmm.

JC Whitney! I loved their "understated" way of marketing some items. "Some mechanical knowledge required" meant "you'd better have an advanced degree in mechanical engineering", and "some welding" meant "you'll need to cut the car in half".

OLD thread but figured I'd update since this feature was bothering me that it wasn't anywhere on the car.

We have 09' e350. Our 05' CLK had this feature and I wondered why the hell a newer MB wouldn't.

I even clicked over the passenger mirror switch and put it in reverse and it did not do anything.

Started looking in STAR/DAS and did in fact find where this feature is located.

It's under instrument cluster, then special features. Go to the option and activate it. It will reset the cluster and then you will have the menu to either switch it on or off from the steering wheel.

As soon as I turned it on, and then clicked the mirror button to the passenger side, put the car in reverse and now the passenger mirror tilts down and away. It can be adjusted to any spot that you like.

Put it in drive and click the driver mirror button and it goes back up.

Hope that helps. Attached two pictures I just took.
