This is one more reason we need a mid-gate; to be able to get out of CT after parking it in a garage like this.

The folded passenger mirror tells me, this is just for the record, and not a comfortable daily activity. Which brings me to the question; can you fold one mirror electronically independent of the other?

Turns out that the removable mirrors are more so the vehicle can fit in garages instead of using cameras.

Now people can start worrying about stolen mirrors.

Not sure what legal requirements for the mirror is but if they are required to drive the truck but there is no size limitations, I can see aftermarket baby mirrors that do not add to the width taking off as replacement for factory mirrors.

So like 2 little skin tags hanging off the sides.

When I get a peak into garages in my neighborhood, it's a wonder that any car will fit.

My house wasn’t made for me to have to walk in the cold or rain to get in my car. Please end this silly argument.
If it's that important to you, make sure you have one big enough, and futureproof. 😁

guilty as charged

for us it's a consequence, i say, of having an unaltered 1960s house (small closets and no aux storage) with no attic or basement ... and (this is key) three young children

i could still fit a 2dr jeep wrangler (if I still had one), but at this rate not for long!

Can you "unpark it", that is have it autonomously return to its previous position with the FOB or an app?
Yes and no. It doesn't go to a specific spot but the fob can summon the vehicle out. So can the app

The right side view mirror is folded, but the driver's side is still out!!! 😳

It'll be a great feature if they're independently foldable and geotagged so that they automatically repeat that when you return to that location. 🤞

Nothing that a bit of speed can't compensate for when coming home at night. Just aim and fire! All looks pretty squishy to me.

At least then you won't have to look for the Cybertruck keys in the morning anymore, seeing you parked it in your kitchen the night before.... 😄

A quick glance* at https://law.justia.com/ seems to indicate that there are no specific size requirements for mirrors. If there is any specifics at all "driver able to view an area 200' behind the vehicle" seems standard. You can put baby mirrors on your vehicle, but would be at the mercy of a police officer and/or a judge (possibly when they're having a bad day) to decide if your mirrors fit the bill. 🤷🏽
