Post The Rear View Mirror Guide

I've noticed mirrors can have a lot of options

options
Alarm "LED" (is this identified by red dot?)
FLA = automatic high beam via light sensor
Compass
Homelink garage opener
EC = "Electrochromatic" Auto dim (dip)
Rain sensor
ETC = Electronic Toll Collection
RC = remote control (not sure what this is. possibly just the key FOB receiver)

Learnings / Notes
1. Mirrors from E82, 5, 7, X1, X3, X5 etc are interchangable. Even e90 mirrors work on e46 mirrors

2. Very rare: some mirrors have Compass+FLA+GTO

For a BMW: Go to realoem.com and input your car info. Find the mirror part number that requires every option = yes. It will even show you cross applications. Search for that.

Sorry, no idea for your Lambo, try rockauto.

I have an e90 2007 with Auto Lights, Rain Sensor.
without auto dim. No fla. no Garage door homelink.

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=51_5830
There are only 3 mirrors above with FLA

#51169225987 has the most options

For vehicles with Integrated universal remote control and High-beam assistant
S319A=Yes S5ACA=Yes 01
Rearview mirror EC/LED/GTO/FLA/RC

Questions:

1. Will the above part be compatible with alarm?
realoem says LED means for alarm system.
But in other mirror parts it specifically says "for vehicles with alarm"
so is there something else missing?

2. What is Auto dip interior?
I know exterior means auto dip the exterior side mirror for parking. But what does Auto Dip Interior do?????

3. Why do some mirrors mention RC "remote control".
Don't all cars have remote control?

Auto dip is auto dimming.

Will the location of wire cuts in this used mirror photo will be a problem for retrofitting?

No it won't be a problem. Exact number of wires.

I bought a used RVM that comes with homelink/auto dimming so and my car wasn't equipped, so I'll have to code it. Looking for the coding site...

Since this is "The Guide," I am hoping someone can share whether I can replace the OEM mirror with a generic aftermarket mirror, and not trigger any codes or have any problems?

My mirror has a few issues, and I don't care about the compass feature I have. From what I can tell, I have the 51169192321 mirror, EC/LED/GTO/compass/RC, but not alarm. I confirmed this at BMWVIN that I have S5GAA, Preparation for Alarm.

EDIT: I've received confirmation from another member that replacing the mirror will not trigger any codes. I'll confirm in a month or two after I buy and install one!
