power m3 mirrors wiring
k so 2 years ago i got m3 mirrors for my 320 sedan off ebay, stupid guy gave me the 2dr ones..(i think) i couldnt fit them on, and now i have the cab so i'm pretty sure they'll fit. PROBLEM my car has 2 wires and the mirrors have 3
has anyone done this install before? i dont have a way of testing what each wire controls (up down left right) idunno im confused n dont wanna blow fuses.. help pleeease!

The third wire is cause your mirrors are heated. Some of them came like that. Just use the other two wires. 03-07-2012 04:07 AM

Okay, well the mirrors have 3 wires a green white a yellow , but I don't remember if they r heated, don't think they r... And I still haven't popped the cover to see how many wires my car has, can u confirm a 1994 325i has 3 wires? My 320i sedan had either 2 or 4 I forget but it was different than the mirrors, got the up n down to work tho lol... For the fitment part of the install I checked forums n learned that I have to sand down the 3 pegs otherwise the mirrors will stick out an not look flush.. I gotta hit up ct n get wire connector thingys an sand paper I'm gonna put them on tomoro I figure if I play with the 3 wires I'll find a combination eventually lol 03-08-2012 05:48 PM

heres pics, i put em on but still haven't wired anything lol*wiggle*
i had to cut off the pegs because they weren't even close to the holes and jus screwed screws in the plastic

i confirmed the 4 wires from my car going into the original mirrors, does anyone know how i should wire them? i think its red white black n green?

edit: i know my bumper is loose and looks like shit lol
