Side Mirrors Question

I was wondering wether or not one of the side mirrors would go down when you put the car into reverse. I really like this feature and hope the Camaro has it. I can't really tell from the picture if the left/right buttons stay down, so does anyone know for sure? Thanks!

edit: sry pic did not come up but it is the 5th picture in this thread- http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7166

yes you can angle them down manually by using the little power thing like the picture you showed, if you are talking about automatically them doing it when you back up then... wthell how come i have never seen this? on any car

Think I know what he means. If I understand right. Put it in reverse and the right side mirror automatically angles down so you don't scrub the curb. Never heard of it before, but suppose it'd be a interesting option.

yea that was what i thought too.. but i just don't see that being an easily or feasible option because of obvious things in regards to the angles.

yeah that is a standard feature on chevy cars with electric mirrors

this will be included

also for the people who didnt know what it was , its so you can see the curb so you dont give your wheels curb rash.

I've seen it on a couple of different cars... It's actually kinda weird to me, but could see where it could come in handy.

I have the feature on my sierra. Its useful, you can also shut it off if you dont want it or have both mirrors do it. I have it on the passenger side mirror

The lexus, BMW, and mercedes models have them in their mirrors...I've never seen a Chevy car with them, but I hope headpunter is right about all Chevy model with electric mirrors have them...maybe its part of the parking assist option that you can get on the car

my parents tahoe has it, but they hate it and i find it disorrientating so i dont use it either, but it is included in cars with electric mirrors, its so easy to set up from the cars computer that it doesnt really cost them anything to add it. it will be on this car no doubt
