    Charlie's ///M Project Thread

    Now that I have completed retrofitting autofold into my M3 side mirrors, Im contemplating on whether or not I want to/should retrofit autodimming to my side mirrors like Shawn has on his M3 sedan





    Very tempted and I know what wires to run thanks to Shawn sharing information I need to get this retrofit done.

    It is ALWAYS GOOD PRACTICE to recognize ANYONE who help you to get your mods done on your car. Remember this folks.

    With that said, my thanks to Mirza for his auto-fold DIY guide. If I did not see this I would not have tried doing this. His guide explained everything that I needed to do to get the autofold feature to work on my M3.

    Deciding if I want to leave the car as is or recode it so my keys will activate my new autofold feature every time I lock my car?

    Looks awesome!
    You don't park this car on tight street everyday, so you probably do not need to fold them everytime it's closed.
    My vote unquestionably goes for auto-dimming features retrofit. I think this is very cool.

    Youre right. I dont street park my cars. I will never street park any of my cars. Not worth the risk of some idiot side swiping the car or some asshat vandalizing it.

    I see myself activating autofold when I park my car in the garage just so I can get my ass around the car without touching my side mirrors

    Im seriously considering doing this mod... perhaps in May/June when temps are in the lower 70s. It will add another nice touch to my M3

    Thanks guys. It comes down to the little things as well such as adding options that were not available to US spec cars... apparently my work is getting noticed by a few in my area because my M3 is getting invited to area meets this year...

    How can you not go when one of the event coordinators texts you You MUST and I mean MUST bring the M3 to the opener May 3rd

    Then he texts this:
    Not the wagon, nor the Porsche. The M3. People need to see your M3. Ill put you inside VIP parking

    He finishes the invite by texting me this...
    More people need to see the M3! And appreciate the work regardless if they can grasp the insanity of the OEM CSL door panels alone

    So I will be bringing my M3 to the 2020 season opener event in Connecticut. It has been a few years since I have shown my M3 at any car event.

    After programming my GM5 module Botond also programmed my FTM and BTM modules and updated my VO for auto fold side mirrors and got my key fob to enable the auto fold feature. This mod is now complete. Thanks for the assist Botond.



    I also readjusted my passenger LED fog light and when I drove home could see everything was perfect. These Morimoto LED fogs are worth every penny, and for those who did not buy them... consider getting them.

    On my way down to Botond's house, a lowered Audi B5 A4 (or debadged S4) sedan rolled up on me, car was looking very nice and looked like it was properly modded and set up. They were checking out my M3 and Botond and I, of course were checking out their modded Audi... it was a pretty nice exchange of appreciation for each other's ride... as they moved forward Botond and I could see the passenger say to his driver "check out that caliper!!" and his mouth dropped as he looked at my front 6-pot calipers... it was amusing to see their reaction to my Brenbo GT BBK... damn my M3 was looking good today...



    Anyway I wanted to share this with you all...
