chromatic rear views are an easy find. Hit the dealer up. I don't know if your '97 528 will have the power harness (best to look for yourself), but on my mother in law's non premium package (and thus no auto dimming rear view mirror) '01 X5, the harness was there.Jerwoy1234 said:Anybody has knowledge where to buy a chromatic rear-view mirror, as an upgrade for my '97 528i.....Would appreciate some help. Thanks.
I did get mine from the dealer. Pacific BMW as a matter of fact. Fit right into my '00 540 where it replaced an auto dimming unit. The only problems I could see are the ones I expressed above. Remove your old mirror and take a look for the harness.blue_uhuru said:PropellerHead...I'm wanting to do the Compass Mirror mod myself. Did you get yours from the dealer? Will there be any problems installing on a 97 528? My current mirror has the manual dimmer switch and the alarm thingy at the bottom.

It auto-dims as well.mgianetto said:PropellerHead,
Is the new unit with out auto dimming? I also have a 00 540 and I like the thought of having a compus (SP. ) in my car, I travel alot and don't have a navi in my car.... but my wife does and isn't driving much
