My BMW330 CI used to dip the passenger mirror on reverse. How do-able is this on the Civic?

I do miss this. I also miss the auto-dim rear view mirror. Now, I know they can be purchased from Honda but the auto-dip passenger mirror would be very, very helpful. My alloys would thank me too ;-)

In your sig it says "traffic flow" - what's that all about then?

My Xantias had this feature as well.

That was so useful. I understand some VW's have it.

Plenty of cars have it, but often with electric (memory) seats. But.... it's often the case that drivers set their mirrors too high. If it's lowered a bit so that cars in the lane next to you are higher up the mirror, then suddenly the mirror shape makes sense and you can see the parking space line when reversing.

This comes into it's own when you've got 19in alloys and you need to see the rim and the curb. My BMW had 19in alloys on it and the mirror dip was a real life saver.

Yes, it's parallel parking where that really comes into its own when you can get your rear wheel about 1" from the kerb without touching it.

Such a simple idea but so useful.

Note to Honda for the next gen Civic :D (alongside the IRS)

Don't know what a 1.5 Clio is....

1. I learnt in a Mk2 Cortina. Box shaped with horizontal lines and a view out of the back.

2. Just because it hasn't got it doesn't mean you should have to lump it, unless yours is a purely standard unmodified model and not a "special" one avec Mods.

3. It wasn't a complaint, just a request for knowledge. Which sometimes is followed up by a technical response from the likes of Potty.

Improvements are not Complaints!

btw I don't have a rear view camera, can't you reverse then?

Rear View Cam is very helpful im guessing you dont have a SatNav model ?????????????????

Rear View Cam is very good IMO never need to turn all the way round only use mirrors and camera

Also a 1.5 Clio is a Clio that has a 1.5 Engine lol
