If you ordered the autofolding mirrrors and want them to autofold, then you have to buy the SAM1.0 module (www.innoparts.de) and the mirror switch with fold button (dealer).

i`m bying the M3 style auto fold from this company,maybe you have time and have a look tell me what you think pls.this is the weblink were i both them from,for a BMW Compact(http://www.bmstyling.co.uk/E46Exterior.htm) they said to me all i need to make the autofold work is get an eletric window switch and that should do for them to fold in and out the mirrors.but i have to say when i sow your DIY job 2 days later after i orderd and payed for these mirrors,i was amazed.and i kind of like thigs on my BMW to look as good and as best,and your`s stands out by a mile..so if it was you telling me what do,what you think i should do pls?go with the simple eletric window swith choice or your M3 MIRROR RETROFIT..?Thanks once again for your help and replay,look forward to your advice on what i should do..
As I said, you can't fold the mirrors with only the switch. If your car did not come with the folding mirrors from factory, then you are missing the fold module. From what I see in the website, the mirrors will be 6-pin so you can skip the pin conversion, but I'm afraid you will have to do the rest of the steps
