    Hi all,

    Bought some mirrors a while back... but their not BMW parts. No bother too me, they fit with different base plates... but the "plugs" for the electric are totally different.

    Now, i am happy to cut the end off the OEM mirror end as its the wrong end and rewire a bmw end on... but can anyone tell me, will i damage the car or the mirrors if i wire them up wrong?

    Reason i ask is, i have the wiring diagram as per the haynes (as "helpful" as that is) but the wires are different colours on the new mirrors... so it might be a case of suck it and see.

    Anyone able to offer assistance?? i think if i wire it wrong it will just blow a fuse right? that i can deal with.

    Tar.

    Tom

    All i remember is that BMW had a clever system using wires for a couple of different things

    There's a wiring guide for your car, you'll have to look through what you have and see if they are compatible
