I'm pretty sure that's not it.

I double and triple checked EVERY connector in the door (for an hour because I just couldn't believe I was so styupid as to not mark them when I removed them!).

Look at post #60 above, where I show what connects to that black connector on my front driver's side door. Here's step #34 from that post, reproduced below:

Note that the question of where this connector goes is also asked here:
-> E39 (1997 - 2003) > Purpose of wire connector

If it's not for the chromatic mirrors, I wonder what the M5 folding mirror connector looks like?

NOTE: I know nothing about the M5 folding mirror connector so I'm just asking if anyone knows the shape of 'that' connector?
