I'll vouch for this as well. One quick trip to Radio Shack to get a decent looking button (they have quite a few to choose from), a couple of solder points, and I was off. Total cost $2.49. It looks very stealthy, and fits right in.GSR13 said:
Yup, the 3er install looks exactly like that too. The only noticable difference is the interior light cluster looks different. Other than that it's identical to the 5er. You'd still have to pop out the light cluster then the panel, just like in your photos.johnlew said:Here it is in pics. $2

If you mount the remote like you see posted above, with a bit of practice, you'll find you have no trouble finding it in the dark. My wife and I both have it down pretty well now!OBS3SSION said:The advantage of the BMW door opener is that it is lit at night and draws power from the car. I've got a similar in dash button in my Passat, and while much nicer than the clunky remote, I dislike it because I have to find it in the dark, often hitting the wrong button, and the batteries die.
I also live in a complex with a gate and am considering the UGDO if I can use if for the gate AND my garage door. I'm hesitant to replace my garage door opener unless people here can relate any experience with the UGDO and RF gates. TIA-jedi7001 said:Has anyone programed a community gate remote to this thing? I got mine a few weeks ago and installed it in 15 min. I programed my garage door opener to it but I also live in a gated community. I have a RF gate opened and it does not want to program to this thing. I am assuming it is a roming code like a garage door opener. any thoughts?
I live in a gated community. The gate opener was the first one that I programmed and it worked immediately. My roaming code garage opener gave me trouble programming it. You really need 2 people to program a rolling code garage opener, 1 to press the button at the garage opener motor and 1 to press the button in the car. Fortunately I had help but it still took us a couple of tries.eyeguy said:I also live in a complex with a gate and am considering the UGDO if I can use if for the gate AND my garage door.

The EBay version is "EuroHomelink" for European frequencies - I assume it works the same in the U.S., right? Stupid question probably but if the frequencies or range capability are different it would be good to know...16hr Day said:Just installed my UDGO that I bought at the buy-it-now price of 110 on ebay. the DIY link that is on this thread was perfect. Since I hardwired my V1 last week, I am becoming a pro at removing the interior light and panel. For all of you with the $2 radio shack button, I have 3 doors that I now can control from one unit. :flipoff:
