    Folding Mirrors need Coding?

    I bought a pair of rep M5 mirrors. I also have the correct passenger door module and the driver master switch with fold button. After I install all of these, do I need to code anything or is it totally plug and play? TIA

    Plug and Play. Mirrors,module and M5 window master switch

    Just listen to the sound of the engine. Isn't that the answer? If you don't understand it, it's not my problem". alex zanardi

    I was always curious about this one... are the 2001 E38 modules viable alternatives?

    Yes, but I mean both the left module and right passenger module (the one that sits behind the door panel).

    The E38 7 series version (folding ofcourse) is a dime a dozen!

    No coding necessary. Those are all you need (assuming the passenger side door module carries the correct part number).

    I purchased this one last year to achieve this effect, and I believe it came off of an e38.

    Edit: lol looks like yours is identical. You should be good to go.
