If I had power folding mirrors the second video would be really slick. I can just see me accidentally hitting the lock x 3 feature accidentally when trying to get into the car with an arm full of groceries during a typical Florida storm. Of course the rain would then short out the window module and it wouldn't go back up, that would be SO much fun!

My '07 VR has the 'press-for-3-blinks' turn signal feature, which I like - I keep forgetting our '02 S60 doesn't, The only issue is there isn't a 'cancel', If you change your mind and press up you get 3 blinks in the other direction.

An Audi we used to have had both the folding mirrors and the open-windows-with-keyfob features. The mirrors would pre-suppose some sort of actuating motor, which our Rs don't have (the covers seem to have been replaced on the one in the video.) The window opening is my second favorite feature after memory-seat-settings-tied-to-keyfob (my spouse is 8 inches shorter), so count me in.

My 2001 Audi had the widow (and sunroof) feature great on hot days or when I left the windows down at night. Walk over to the back door and roll up the widows from inside the house.

You can purchase a power folding mirror kit. I have it installed. The only thing is, it actuates via a button on the center console, not the remote. I'd love to have this function since remembering to fold the mirrors in and out every time I get in/out of the car before I turn off the ignition is a bit of a pain.

So what is involved with getting the comfort blinkers on an 04 SR?

From all of the attempts that I have made to get an answer to this, it seems that only the 2007's have the "lane change" blinker available. It is hard-coded into the main control modules somewhere, as many of the part numbers are the same across model years (allegedly).

There was also talk of the auto window down feature. I am guessing that those features are a combination of the car in the video being both 2007+, and/or European. I think it'd be interesting to get Lucky's thoughts... ;)

Volvotech is an internetshop, but they do also own a garage. Suggestion is to fill in the contact form and get in touch with Bob (owner of Volvotech)

Just one tip:
On the volvotech website a list of all supported models/years is available.
And the device is still be beeing developed. So more models will be included and even more importantly, more functionality will be added.
The 2005+ models (as I understood from the Dutch volvo forum) are more difficult to include, but will be included in time..

You're right, and according to the website - I have an 803 (had an 803) radio and its a 4 on the 10th digit of my VIN, so this should work with the AEM setup. I sent the email to 'double check', would hate to order from Netherlands just to ask for a return because I didn't do my homework.
