    Will mirrors from a 2002 car fit straight onto my 2004 330ci?

    I've currently got AC schnitzer mirrors that I want to replace with the OEM standard mirrors

    I've put a listing on ebay and had 3 offers of swap deals, all 3 people looking to swap have 2002 model cars which I know are pre-facelift

    Does anyone know whether these mirrors will be plug and play straight onto my car?

    I believe the fitment changed from 12 plug adaptor to ribbon cable at some point?

    The wiring change happened at the facelift, so if they're pre-lift cars, they won't fit straight on to yours. It might be possible to swap the motors and wiring, but quite a lot of hassle.

    So if I'm going to swap my mirrors with someone it needs to be someone with a facelift aswell?

    I don't know, I'd prefer the OEM look myself.

    I do like the ACS mirrors but I'd prefer the standard square ones on the coupe
