    Hi All,
    just read this thread and get concerned. Maybe I have surrender to my wife and Mom and buy a Sienna?
    my garage door is only 92" wide and is has no drive ways, and perpendicular to a 6 meter wide road.
    Model X Dimensions....
    If I have to fold the mirror to get in and out, then how do I know that I am backing the car right?
    "Overall Length 198.3” 5,035.6mm
    Overall width including mirrors 89.4” 2,271mm
    Overall width including folded mirrors 81.6” 2,073mm
    "
    Turning circle 40.7feet or. 12.4m


    ...larger than the Model S 37' and our 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan which is 36.8'"

    Sienna dimensions:
    200″ L x 78″ W x 69″ H

    That's going to be a doozy for you to get in the garage

    It's doable. I have a very small garage as well. Just turn on the ultra sonic screen. Proceed slowly and get the red/orange halo around the car to be even on both sides before entering. You'll be fine. :)

    Backup camera is fine with mirrors folded. Or just use autopark or summon.

    I doubt any of the auto park or summon functions would work since the ultra sonic sensors keep screaming "STOP" all the way through.

    92" is plenty of space. I do it with 91". My car doesn't have summon yet, but when they brought the demo car to my house for a garage check summon worked ok on it.

    When parking manually I find that the best way to do it is to approach the garage with the mirrors OUT. You can use them to help your alignment. Then once you are sure of the alignment you can quickly fold them in and you'll be guaranteed to make it. Really you've got 5" clearance on both sides once the mirrors are folded in, which is not a problem at all.

    Yes the parking sensors will be screaming at you. But they are just very conservative. I believe they start screaming STOP when they get to 12". Just learn to ignore them.

    Thanks . Just want to confirm, the mirror is foldable from the Control panel, right?

    Middle button on arm rest where mirror adjustment buttons are located.

    This. I sometimes have to fold mine if I get really close to the drivers side while backing in and trying to maximize room for our other car. I have a feeling I'm going to catch it one of these times though as I'm getting a little too comfortable! :eek::p;)

    Whenever summon becomes available for ap2....does anyone know if summon can be activated from inside the vehicle while all the occupants remain inside the vehicle?

    I think you should be able to do it with the app. Never tried though.
