DIY: Retrofitting an Electrochrom Mirror in my e93



Hi all! Few weeks ago, I retrofitted an auto dim mirror in my e93 with the wiring harness I bought at my dealer and coding the new equipment with NCS.

It is a little bit different from e90/e92 (e93 FZD is different from others).

The costs are:
- Mirror -> Depends on eBay, but you can find it between 80$ to 200$. If you want homelink, compass or FLA it will be more expensive.
- Wiring harness -> 25$ at your dealer.

I hope you like it.

Enjoy!

I will be doing this soon. Although I have an E92 at least I have a main idea when retrofitting this

Thanks!

You should post up exactly what you coded using NCS. Also, any idea if the side mirrors would work after this coding as well?

Nice work.

Nice work.
I wrote the exactly change that you have to do in your VO with NCS at the end of the video... $431 to CAS and NFRM and reset the car coding. (FAQs part)

But you could do it changing a value in the FZD manually.
The code is EC_SPIEGEL

If you retrofit the exterior mirrors too, you have to add other code ($430 maybe) to tour VO or enabling 'SPIEGEL_ELEKTROCHROM' in your NFRM/FRM

Next step!

Retrofitting auto dimming side mirrors!
They are in progress

I am going to retrofit them with power folding too. I'll post a DIY Guide.
