HELP! How To Retro Fit Power Folding Mirrors!

Wondering if anyone can help me, i have just bought a 2007 E70 BMW X5 48i which did not come with electric power folding mirrors and i would like to retrofit them as a substitute.

I have gathered i will need:-
2 Power Folding Wing Mirrors
A new Switch
and everything to be coded

So my question is can someone tell me all the parts i will need to execute this retro fit if i have missed anything?!

please & thanks in advance

Do you have memory seats? I did this on my E90 and memory seats got me all the needed wiring in the door. Pull off the interior covers where your mirrors bolt up. Compare the electrical connector to some pictures of mirrors on ebay.

Yeah the drivers seat has the memory option on it if that’s any good.

On the E90, drivers seat memory gets you mirror position memory. Which puts the mirrors on the network bus which also is used to tell them to fold in. E90 and E70 are sometimes similar so you may get lucky with this.
