X3 Homelink Mirror

I want to install a Homelink rearview mirror in my '04 X3. Does anyone know if homelink rearviews from other BMW models would work in my X3?

Thanks in advance,

Brad

Brad the one I got from Ebay was from a M4 so the answer is yes.

homelink

I bought a 5 series homelink mirror for my x3 and it worked perfectly. I bought one from the same model year to be safe. I am a lot happier knowing that if someone breaks into my car they can't steal my opener and get into my house.

I installed a Homelink mirror in my 2006 E83. I am not sure where I bought it but it looks exactly like the old mirror and functions in the same way. It took five minutes to install.

My MGB is a '75 with a SBC! Not a typical MGB! Thanks, guys, for all your input on the Homelink mirror. I just bought one on Evilbay and will be installing it tonight!

That was easy!

Yes, plug in play is right, took less than 5 minutes. Thanks again! Homelink, clown nose, and auto dim work great.
