Been a while since I last posted, have not stopped modding, just been busy gathering parts lel.... One of those parts was a M3 mirror/window switch, so I can use the folding mirror feature of the new mirrors.

As luck would have it, InQ (Nic) came across a couple of switches and grabbed one for me (thanks mate)

Popped this into the arm rest this morning, and is all ready for coding

Install took about 1 min including, testing the button functions after plugging it in lel

Pics below

Pic 1 - M3 Mirror window switch, with folding mirror button
Pics 2, 3 & 4 - Removing the stock E92 switch, just pull up and unplug
Pics 5 & 6 - New switch installed

Crap that sux

Had you had the diff bolts upgraded yourself under the recall or did your diff being a newer model come with them?


Fingers crossed no more setbacks for you mate!

Thanks SJ

Was a newer model diff with the new bolts

It is now with Difflab in Qld getting a new housing and LSD installed under warranty

The great thing about mfactory is they have great after sales service.

Both times I have had a problem, they have replaced (not repaired) stuff immediately without question

The first time, I had a LSD from a group buy that turned out to be the wrong model for my diff. They replaced it with the correct model in 24 hrs, no charge.

This time when the diff failed after two years on the road, same thing. Response was "no problem, we'll take care of it" and they are replacing both the damaged pumpkin and LSD

Mfactory after sales service has been second to none (10/10) Other vendors would be arguing that its installer error or other crap to dodge the warranty.

Point being, is you can buy a mfactory LSD and not worry, plenty running around perfectly and if you do have a problem, they will take care of it guaranteed
