If your car only has a plain, manual rear view mirror (i.e. No auto-dimming at night) then yes, you will need to modify the wiring going to the mirror. BMW offers a retrofit wiring kit, PN 61120434330, approximately $30 from e-tailers, that basically runs power wires from a source in your overhead control panel. Getting the retrofit wires through the existing rubber grommet is tricky and I used a soda straw to accomplish that.

BMW's installation instructions mention that you have to code your car afterwards (e.g. INPA) but I don't think I needed to for auto-dimming/HomeLink with no compass.
