Were power folding side mirrors an option for non-M5 E39s? I have nearly all of the original dealership lit from '99 and don't see it mentioned as an option.

And was the M5 round style the only power folding side mirror - or was there a version with the standard square mirror?

Thanks everyone. :thumbup:

To the best of my knowledge, only the M5 came with power folding side mirrors. It was standard on the M5 and not an option on non M5's. Many people retrofit them to non M5 E39's. I believe its the only route if its a must have for you.

I just bought a non-M power folding mirrors. The shape is slightly different than the regular non-M, but not as bulky as the 540i ones.

Manual fold (taken from 528i) vs power fold comparison. You can see the shape difference

These look great - do you have the BMW part number for the power non-M mirrors? Were they only a non-North American option?


Thanks.

I believe it's euro option.

The only number listed in the cover is this
