http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...saying-hi.html

took the passenger mirror off yesterday (was easiest when I tilted it downward and then pulled up/off). It only has the stuff for the heating elements. I didnt pull the driver side mirror off as it was getting dark though.

I cant imagine only the driver side mirror being the electro type and the passenger being heated but I will check if I get a chance today. makes me wonder if my passenger is original and someone tried to upgrade the driver side at one point? or that was what was used to replace the old mirror for whatever reason??

carfax doesnt show any accidents but maybe it had one and was not reported and they replaced a whole door? my dad owned a body shop for several decades and I know how to spot this type of stuff but it doesnt look like any door bolts or fender bolts have ever had a socket touch them. weird.

maybe the mirror was broken at some point? the door panel does appear to have been off at one point in the past I would assume as the wood trim piece doesnt sit exactly flush where it touches up with the inner door handle. its a little raised like someone never got it to seat properly after removing it.

I've gotta get in there to replace a window plastic clip thats causing window vibration when the window is down so if this isnt original, I'll see a paint line/different color when the door panel is off.

edit: sorry for inadvertantly turning this into a tech thread right now guys. wasnt my intention lol

stackz i'd say at this point start a new thread so we don't get this one off topic.

I will tell you though if you pulled off the passenger mirror and it had no auto-dim connection, good news. you can get that set of mirrors from Latvia that are heated and have blind spot (aspherical) for 60 bucks and replace the pair!

A few things might have happened on your X:

1) Someone replaced the drivers mirror with a whole assembly used from a junkyard after getting the drivers mirror knocked off, and didn't mind that the mirror glass was different

2) Same thing but the mirror glass broke on the drivers side and someone was too lazy to source the proper type

Regardless, your passenger side (blue tinted with heat function only) is the proper type as far as I can tell. UNLESS, someone did the above but replaced the auto-dim passenger side with a complete assembly with just heated glass. My only question is what would they have done with the auto-dim connector in the mirror when replacing the entire assembly.

EDIT: I pulled the last 7 of your VIN from your intro thread, you DO NOT HAVE AUTO DIM MIRRORS FROM THE FACTORY, REPLACE WITH 60 DOLLAR BLUE HEATED MIRROR PAIR!

There is no thread for "What will you do for your X5 tomorrow?" so I guess I'd put this here then.
Planning on having the valve stem replaced. Then a clean/wash and photoshoot. Stay tuned for a DINAN 4.8iS pic-whore thread

I ran your build sheet this morning, sorry if it didn't read so well, your car was not factory equipped with auto dimming mirrors, so the one on your drivers side was a replacement mirror at some point. I will revise your build sheet so you can read it!

Could someone please give me a link to the Latvia guy's site? My right mirror is shot and I could use a replacement. They are not the self-dimming ones, only two wires go to the glass.

I sold my X5 to a guy that was super enthused about owning it. I couldn't have asked for Brawn 2 go 2 a better home. I hope he gets many more miles & is as satisfying as the five years I owned him.

A little late, but I installed the OEM rear seat protector covers.

Just did the front tension arms and ball joints along with the free camber mod. I had no idea my tension are bushing were that bad! The ride is much smoother, now to have her realigned.
