Hi

Im about to try too retrofit folding mirros to my car. Im looking for mirrors and found these that are manufactured 2005-10-25 and my question is if those will fit my -07 M5. Heres some pic of them.

I already coded my car in the hope that i maybe already had the mirros on my car, but nope. I also added the SA430. I already had SA431 in it.

My existing mirror has 3 cables so the ones on the pictures seems the right ones or ? What u guys think ?

Btw i also asend a pic of my car

Yes, as long as they only have three wires they will fit.

Hi

I just installed folding mirror to my E61 M5 and they are working great (thxz to your DIY) except for the auto dim...and yes read that i have to put in some extra wiring...

My question is, why does i have to do that..isnt all wires in the harness or !??! . The mirror has 3 Cables in a 4 connector and i tought that maybe this could be "programmed" instead.. or !??!

In a original fitted folding mirror, is there more cables in the door harness than i got !?

@Asik: If you have three wires, you most likely already have the wiring. Just try programming, if your mirror is dimming.

Everything works but the auto dim..my inside read mirror does auto dim when i take a flashlight on the sensor and if im correct this should then send this info to the mirrors so they also auto dim..
The auto folding/unfolding wehen locking/unlocking my car also works..
I could be that i have to add the wire from the module to the dorr/chassi connector...

You are most likely missing the wiring from your rear mirror to the controller. If you have three wire side mirrors then they are already on canbus, so they don't need additional wiring. You need to run wires from you rear mirror to KGM. Detail is in the DIY by @BLooD.
