I have read this DIY about power folding mirrors and that has got me interested to do that on my car...
Described a couple of options about which parts are needed in different situations and now I am a bit confused.
My car came out of the factory originally with NO power/memory seats and manual folding NON memory mirrors, it is a 320Ci from 08/2001.
I do have a set of OEM M3 manual folding NON memory mirrors on the car.
I have an option on a pair of OEM M3 full-option mirrors (power fold and problaby memory) with 12 pin connectors.
I want to swap the entire internals because the mirrors I can buy are a different color.
If I do that I will have a set of full option M3 power folding memory mirrors in my cars color with 12 pin connectors.
What do I need to get the power folding function to work???
Option A: YOU WANT TO INSTALL NON-MEMORY POWER FOLD MIRRORS:
Car's production date is from 09/1999 up to 03/2003-6 PIN/2 PIN CONNECTORS
x1 Heated outside mirror, left P/N: 51168245129 $344.82
x1 Heated outside mirror, right P/N: 51168245132 $344.82
x1 Yellow Switch f mirror adjust./folding back function. P/N: 61318373732 $67.34
x1Control Unit/module outside mirror fold-in function OBSOLETE-P/N: 61358376506
or Control Unit/module outside mirror fold-in function NEW-P/N: 61359177976 $83.78
Option B: YOU WANT TO INSTALL MEMORY POWER FOLD MIRRORS:
Car's production date is from 09/1999 up to 03/2003 - 12 PIN CONNECTOR
x1 Heated outside mirror with memory left P/N: 51167003437 $344.82
x1 Heated outside mirror with memory right P/N: 51167003440 $344.82
x1 Purple Switch f mirror adjust./folding back function P/N: 61316901383 $67.34
-And you should already have in your car:
x2 Control units, mirror memory NEW-P/N: 61356916054 $125.69 (x2)
or Control units, mirror memory OBSOLETE-P/N 61356913364 (x2)
The confusion comes from the fact that the car originally came without power/memory mirrors and I have a set of power/memory mirrors to install.
I hope somebody can clear this up for me, it would be of great help!!!
