Thread: Retrofit OEM M3 side mirrors doityourself

  1. #61
    Wiring side:
    Thoughts on setting the VO to the GM5 to be before 0303, making it think it's a prefacelift car? That way we could use the coupe/vert mirror module and lose the stupid ribbon cables forever.

    Current Cars: 2005 IR/IR M3, 2001 LMB/blk M5, 2003 530i 5mt, 04 M3 wagon (with ZHP interior and exterior trimmings)
    Past cars: 04 M3, 96 M3, S50B32 e36 M3 CM race car, 6mt NA RWD e91

    Im picking up M3 mirrors this weekend. Already have the ribbon cables waiting at home. Any update on the scanned sedan baseplate?

    This DIY thread is in serious need of being updated featuring Sergy's 3D printed mirror motor baseplates. As I start doing this retrofit on my ZHP this Spring, I will be renovating the procedures outlined in this DIY and using new pictures from my upcoming retrofit on my first post in this DIY.

    I also plan to write up differences in mounting OEM M3 side mirrors on ZHP coupes and vents in this DIY as well primarily focusing on swapping in the ZHP mirror motors into the OEM M3 mirror housings.

    Can u add which bolts you used when installing the mirror plates onto the door. I know you have to drill new holes to install the mirrors to the door . This is were I ended up getting stuck years ago when I was tackling this task .

    Where to make the new holes and what bolt size to used ? The cable ribbons was another headache .

    I will be updating this DIY soon. I just sourced my ZHP side mirrors from eBay so that I can take out the mirror motors to transplant into my OEM M3 side mirrors I have already sourced for my ZHP project. It has been awhile since I have done this project on my first ZHP and I don't remember what bolt I used but will be documenting what to use and where I got the bolts from so other's won't have to guess here... please be patient as I have plenty of other projects lined up right now to catch up on before taking on this project...
