: I was looking to install the mirror that came on the 5 series. I know it may be different but how much different from the dimming mirror that you installed. The five series mirror had the integrated red security light, which I really could use.Was the dimming mirror you installed from a 3 series?
: : I did this a while back. It was a lot of work and in my opinion not worth the trip. If you are looking for a project, The dimming rear view mirror is a lot easier to install and much more useful.
: : : I remember reading a while back that someone was looking for the parts to upgrade the rear quarter windows, which are manual in the U.S., to power ones. It sounds like a cool thing to do, but am curious as to the difficulty of the install, and the cost of the parts. If you did this, post something or email me. Thanks.
