Yes, they are a straight swap, just need to make sure you get the right ones to match your car, electric folding/tinting etc. More options = higher the price :(

Pretty much as described by peeps before. The mirrors as fitting are straight bolt on / bolt off. The only real issue to look out for is the wiring.

There are two kinds of mirrors, 3 wire (high / linbus) is for mirrors that have electric fold, heated and electric glass, mirror dip on reverse etc. 5 wire is for the "low" mirrors and they have manual fold, heated and electric glass and that its. (All this info was from Chris's thread so can't take any credit for the knowledge :lol:) The way to check is to pop the tweeter cover (well blank in my case) and check the wiring running to the mirrors.

The cost from BMW for everything brand new came to over £1000 including bases, auto-dim glass and primed mirror covers.

Thank you for this and your PM. I guess the easiest thing to do is pop out the cover and check how many pins I have but from your description - sounds like i'll have 5 pins for sure.

Do you have any pics of yours?
