Homelink Mirror Retrofit on 2010+ manually dim mirror

On the 2010+ e90/e82, the rear view mirror does not even have the red alarm clown nose LED anymore. Hence, there is no wires what-so-ever running from the roof function center to the mirror...

In this case, have anyone done a homelink mirror retrofit on these cost savings bastardized mirrors? My biggest concern is if I will need to follow the European instructions to painfully wire that Ground connection through the A pillar... Please advice!!!

I don't know if this is all the same, but even with the 2008 retrofit you had to run wires up through the boot to power the homelink and auto-dim, despite there was already a ground present. You can't use the clown nose LED as your power.

So you may be in for some fishing in any event.
