Isn't only 3 pin electric memory as well?
Electric memory are seats?

Those that come with a car with no auto fold, unless they have 3 pin they won't auto fold as far as I know.

Sorry, I meant seats...... if you have memory seats, you should have 3 pins correct (Lin bus)....

but I've seen a M3 with full elec seats with memory, have 5 pins in the wing mirror!

So it could be possible that there are power fold mirrors that have 5 pins & don't use the Lin bus wires!?

Damn.... I just want the mirrors, so I know one way or another!

No as those specced without Autofold option will not have 3 pin but 5 pin.

But if u have electric memory and get some 3 pin mirrors then it's a lot more simpler to code.

5 pin mirrors will not have Autofold motor in them.

Not necessarily.
When you used to tick memory seat on e9x configuration, you had to pay only nominal charges for folding mirrors. However some intelligent people decided to go against folding mirrors.
So you'll find memory seats with standard mirrors but those cars are 5-10% of e9x population.

Yep, as everyone said (& I originally thought) - these are not power folding!

I have a european e93 330d with electrical, autodimming and electrical folding mirrors.
But the connector is a 5pin version

Now I'm looking for the LCI design version to do the swap.
If I'm losing the auto dimming function, I don't care.

Does this exist, electrically adjustable and electrically folding LCI mirrors in a 5 pin config?

If so, what are the parnumbers? (Looked on realoem but pin config is not mentionned)

If you got power folding mirrors, then you'll have 3 pins

I have electrically folding mirrors and they are no 3pin but 5pin
I checked by dismantling the mirror and my local dealer confirmed based on my chassis number!

Is it possible to dismantle the motors and wiring of my mirror and
Re-install it in the "lci mirror casing"

If you compare both pics it looks as if it's not such a stupid question.
Can't imagine that bmw develops each time new motors, they try keep costs as low as possible I guess so same equipment in new design...

175 for an hours labour!? I'm guessing that didn't include the mirrors or switch!?
