If you have the advanced key then by keeping your finger on the outside door button for 2 to 3 seconds the mirrors will fold. They will unfold when you turn the ignition on.

I can't actually remember but mine do fold on lock. If you can change it it will be in the car menu in the MMI.
If you manually fold in then you will have to manually fold out using the mirror control knob.

Just took del of my BE, the mirrors fold on locking. I've been trying to assimilate the handbook and not yet come cross anything about switching between auto/man fold. That's not to say I may yet come to it.

Unless the Car system menus have change on the 2018 MY cars there isn't a menu option to auto-fold the mirrors on lock as there is in say a Q5.

The factory have started enabling by default and for owners of older cars (with elec folding mirrors fitted) it can be added using a 3rd party tool like OBD11.

Yes - checked this morning and it just does it. (Provided you specified the folding mirror option). The little knob on the drivers door overrides the fold on lock option. That is to say if you fold the mirrors manually to drive into your garage then they stay folded until you manually fold them back out.

picked up my new car on 31/3/2018 amazing! my doubts about auto-folding mirrors where unfounded as this was set up for me by the audi dealer......one thing I must say though an audible sound when locking/unlocking car with advance key would be handy(as on my previous car mazda cx-5) but really pleased so far

Hi rodders43, just checked on my OBD11 and audible warning on lock/unlock/both is an available app. You can have a look for yourselves by downloading the OBD11 app on a smart phone for free. Put your Q3 engine type in and it will show you the available modification apps.

Hi rodders43,
My '18 BE came with folding mirrors on locking and lots of other 'bells and whistles', too many to list.
