Been thinking about getting a UGDO transmitter... But have a question regarding the headliner cover. I took mine off and while it does have the break-away plastic square piece, it doesn't have the bulge like the one shown in the OP. Even though it looks like my cover can accept the UGDO unit, would I have clearance issue with the sunroof motor, since my cover lacks the bulge? If I will have issues with fitment, what's the part number for the headliner cover that has the bulge?

My headliner did not have a bulge and either did my friends car. You will not have clearance issues. We installed ours no problem. Go through the steps outlined by delmarco and you'll be fine.

okay now it makes sense to me. I was wondering how it was being programmed. I can program this thing to turn on my air compressor in my garage when Im working on my car

This is actually one of the kits I bought:

They are a lot more various types of switches and remote but the most IMPORTANT thing is that it MUST BE REMOTE powered or controlled for it to work with your homelink.

Random question after installing my Homelink: I've had it installed for roughly a month in my M3, and I noticed right away that if my garage door is opened, my dash lights illuminate even if the door was opened from a different source. No biggie, until it drained my battery from going in/out of the garage and not driving the car for a week or so.

I know the easy solution is: drive your M3 more often. However, does anybody know how to make the Homelink not power up every time the garage door is opened from outside the car?
