    OEM covers were cheap enough on ebay, but c'mon man

    Need help...

    I ordered a mirror from a salvage yard using car-part.com and it arrived today. The site had a picture of the mirror installed in a 2008 328i convertible and the VIN showed me the correct options for the mirror.

    I quickly installed it and - compass and Homelink function but the key FOB still doesn't work. Put the original E46 mirror back on, and the key FOBs work.

    What am I missing here? Everything I've read says the antenna is in the E93 mirror too, and it should have been plug and play

    Any thoughts? Not anxious to just go buy a 3rd mirror

    Any help would be appreciated
    - Pete

    I few hours of research have at least yielded me the wiring diagram for the mirror causing more confusion. My original mirror connector is fully pinned. Clearly from the diagram below Pin 2 is the signal wire for the antenna. I then checked both of the mirrors I just bought - and pin 2 is missing in both. And the second mirror wasn't an Ebay purchase, it was supposedly from an E93 328i convertible based on the pictures and the VIN.

    Did the salvage yard ship me the wrong mirror too? Just called them... yup! You order an E90/91/92/93 BMW mirror online and they just grab one. But the sales guy was great, and he's going to see if he can grab a "convertible" mirror if available next week...... one with a Pin 2 please

    Sorry, wish I could help. When I hooked mine up I followed a DIY. Also, my E46 is not a convertible.

    Thanks. The convertible is clearly different and DIY's aren't popping up with how it was accomplished. I'm still digging, and really hope the salvage yard will send me an actual convertible mirror next week. That would be a great start
