V1 Hardwire for E70 and......Hello!

Hi All,
I just picked up a 2008 X5 3.0is in Alpine White with Tobacco Interior:
ZCW
ZPP
ZPS
ZRC
ZTP
Running Boards

yada...yada....yada....

I owned a 2002 X5 for about a year and felt it was too small and too choppy riding, but so far my wife and I are really enjoying the E70.....massive improvement and a nice replacement for her outgoing 2006 530xit

Anyway, the very first thing I always do on any new vehicle is a hardwire install for the V1.

I've done a few searches, but haven't found a simple tutorial yet for wiring it in to the sunroof control area.

Links??

Thanks!

Go to your local dealer.

Offer one of the techs $50 bucks.

Wait 20 minutes.

Drive home with your newly-installed V1 (knowing, by the way, that it was done correctly).

Nah.....that would be too easy! I've hardwired V1's into 7 BMW's now.....it's a 10 minute job once you know which wire to clip on to.

I make a decent living, but not quite $300.00 and hour!!

lots of whites... silver BMWs were most common in the late 90s-00s from what I've seen... hardly any silver E70s.

I've owned 5 Ti SiLver BMW's including a 2002 M3, 2 E39 5 Series cars and, most recently, a 2005 545i and 2006 530xit wagon.

It was time for a change and I felt that white was the better color for the E70 anyway.......IMO of course!

I'm really digging the white/tobacco combo though I would prefer the carpet to be black with black door panels and tobacco inserts.
