Just wanted to ask whether it would be possible to fit E39 M5 mirrors onto an E46 Sedan? I know its possible to fit the E39 halo's into E46, but what about the mirrors?

bases are completely different and too large - not to mention the mirrors would be really big compared to e46 and look funny

Reviving an old thread.....and a couple of questions.....
1) With the base plates being so different as in larger....why are they (Replicas) being sold in Ebay stating that they are direct replacemts for a sedan?
2) Would anybody know what type of connectors does the OE M5 have?
3) Does the mods for the M5 similar to the M3?

Thanks.

the wiring is the same for m3 and m5 (but not the ribbon style facelift cars that arent M cars)

the M5 adds (in the U.S.) the white and blue wire that allows the folding option

The OE M5 mirrors will not fit even if modified on a 3er
