Do i have to check manually by pulling the door apart? or can it be assumed that i have 12 pin mirrors since i have reverse tilt / memory on my 2001 325i?

I would just go check, but my car is about 150 miles away from me, damn college. :p

TIA - please help me out!

Yes 12 pin would be on both mirrors.

If you have power seats you should have 12 pin

And if you are looking to upgrade to the M3 style mirrors I have a pair of replicas that are 12 pin for a sedan with both the mirrror glass having the split convex.It also has the autofold function but you will need the switch that will cost $35. Selling for $300

PM me For Pics!

Trust me, Jim knows.... from all the headache he had to go through to get his to work. Till Bodywerks and I set him up he is a very happy person right?

It's very easy to take the door off, I can do it less then 10 minutes now. Like I told everyone that inquired about this OEM M3 mod, just take the door off and check to be safe then to be sorry. If you need help just let me know.
