Those are called "electrically adjustable ORVM's". Haven't heard of "electronically adjustable...." as yet!

It is a welcome addition for any car.Fitments of MGA accessory would not be possible as there is no provision for the switch on the door pad.You have to inquire about it in the accessory shops.

None of the accessory shops in bangalore have anything like it. Will try looking on the net.

Indeed WR has electrically controled ORVM.The ORVM in alto is internally adjustable not electrically operated.The price would be nearly 1250 for each.

I have seen a kit on the Swift!!! The Mirror not only adjust electrically but also it folds electrically like the mirrors on corolla/civic etc.

What impressed me also was that the way it folded it would fold like the BMW 7 series vertically.

Do lookout for non MGAs if you are looking for internally adjustable. The MGA price is twice that of some unknown brand that I had bought 5 years back for my alto. Note that they are still working fine whereas I have seen a original Alto VXi mirror not working just after a year!
