I´m from Argentina and there are no many good forums like this in spanish, so please scuse me if I make some mistakes writing.
Well, I have this VIN number in my car PW36683; I wanted to add the multifunction steering wheel and the cruise control. I have checked in http://bmwetk.info/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for the correct part for my car and they are the following part numbers <a href="tel:61 31 9123042">61 31 9123042</a> and <a href="tel:61 31 9123043">61 31 9123043</a>. The thing is, I have found just this part <a href="tel:61 31 9123040">61 31 9123040</a> and is seems to work in some bmw 120i models.
Can I know for sure that It will work on my one, or you think is the same. I´m asking because I want to buy this part from a seller from the UK and is the only one He has.

Thanks, and great forum!!
Welcome Jose,
Take a look at http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do ... g=61&fg=35 to see what fits your car. The two part numbers you listed have different functions, so it is not clear what you have on your car (do you have automatic windscreen wipers with the Rain Sensor?). The third part you listed is not on the Real OEM page, so I would think it is not right for your car.

You can see which cars that fits at
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/partxref.do? ... 31+9123040

Good luck.

After reading up a bit on this I am marginally confused, I have seen slip rings at various prices but the 1 series rings with cruise and rear wiper are super expensive.

Does anyone know if I bought a 3 series ring that had a normal wiper stalk (i.e no rear wiper function), could I remove the stalk and replace with my existing one? Is it plug and play?

I have spoken to a auto electrician and that have said they have all the computers BMW has and they would charge about £35

Many thanks in advance

As far as I'm aware you can't just plug a cruise stalk into your existing slip ring.

I have a slip ring ready to fit, who in the north east would like to code it in once I've fitted it? :) Pretty please

If my car has auto wipers but my new CC stalk does not, can I take the auto wiper stalk out of my car, put it in the new slip ring and will this mean that I keep the auto wiper function when it all goes back together?

Thanks
Hi
I've done it! My car has auto wipers but new slipring with cc didn't so I swap right stalk. Auto wipers works as designed except led does not turn on. I suspect need some coding but not sure what to code yet..

That's correct, you can't plug cc stalk in to your original slipring print board as there is no connector and few elements missing. But you can try to swap your original wipers stalk in to new slipring. I play with it a lot and only found difference in flex cable of the wipers stalk. In my case there one extra line for LED in the cable which was missing in the stalk came with cc. Still not figured out how to make LES working (See above post)

The E90 (3 series saloon) does not have a rear wiper, the E91 (3 series touring) does.

Sorry, I just don't know if an E90 ring can be made to work on an E87, hopefully someone else will.

Sorry if as I haven't read all the way through. What's best of determining part number for my 2011 135i?

I can provide a VIN if someone has a supplier etc.
