    I have keyless entry and when I touch the handle to lock the car, the mirrors fold in so I know it’s locked. Even my Mums Fiesta's mirrors folded when the car was locked. I didn’t think there would be cars with keyless entry that didn't have folding mirrors.

    Back to the ‘Onda.....
    One press of the door handle tit locks the car. Another press within 2 sec folds the mirrors in.
    Leave it 3 sec though, and it’s open again:unsure:
    To drive off, clutch down and start up.....you must have the seat belt on and be sitting in the car, so if you want to push the thing a foot or so, forget it - the electronic handbrake won’t release.

    Yes, it comes from a time when car makers made comfortable cars. Now cars have gloomy all black interiors, hard seats, hard suspension and low profile tyres. Even cloth seats were better on the older cars - because you got velour! Whatever happened to velour? Needs to come back.
