Retrofitting autodimming rearview mirror

So my parents 5GT doesn't have the autodimming mirror. Has anyone had one retrofitted in? Any idea on the cost and difficulty of installing it? I have the 5GT for some time so I'm thinking of diverting some of my modding energy away from my e92 and tweak the 5GT before my folks get here.

Any other mods I should consider other than Procede and JB4?

Retrofit auto dimming mirror

If it's as easy as e46 and f10 changing the mirror is as easy as removing plastic rear surround then twisting it 90 degrees to remove and then replace it with a mirror if your choose. Would need to check wiring is in place but as most cars are prewired for a lot of options then I guessing it will be there. If not sure there is a harness out there that can be purchased to provide power to dimming function. I personally have picked up auto dimming mirrors with homelink built in from eBay and have never had any issues. Many mirrors are also the same for differing series of BMWs. Unsure about the gt one but should be easy to check with dealer or other forums.

Thanks Martyn, I'll look into it. I'll check with TischerBMW (my local parts shop) and see what they say. I know a guy who's willing to sell his for $265 USD but it's for a e9x, so i'm not sure if it'll work for F07.
