Default Retrofit Auto Dipping Mirrors When Reversing

My previous car automatically dipped the exterior mirrors towards the ground when selecting reverse which was handy for tight spaces and watching for kerbs.

I see this feature is available on the 3008.

Can it be retrofitted on a 2018 308?

I'm guessing it's a software tweek as i can't imagine any hardware is required?

Cornering front foglights would be a start, 208 & 2008 has it I know it's possible on T9 308 as ive seen a video where it's been done.

There is a setting in the BSI for indexed mirrors or similar. I tried it on my DS with electric mirrors and it did not work but I know of others who have set it and it worked on their cars

Found it strange that my 308 didn't have these despite it being a GT-Line with LED headlights as standard.

Hopefully LED Matrix systems start to become the new premium headlight standard!

So does this mean it's possible? I'm not sure what you mean by BSI in this context?

Sorry...excuse the ignorance!

The BSI is the Built in Systems Interface - basically its the main software driven computer brain in overall charge of all the cars digital CAN CAN multiplex electrical systems.

The car's settings, functions & options are all controlled by the BSI configuration set up which can be adjusted / switched on & off with the correct equipment.

I have seen a video of a T9 308 with cornering front fog lights, someone tweaked the BSI & got it working.

Now PSA own Vauxhall / Opel expect to see the LED matrix headlamp technology to filter across to the PSA products.
