    Is is possible to add home link to an 07 that didn't come with it?

    While that how to is for a 1st gen MINI I'd imagine that a lot of the info is transferable to the 2nd gen as well.

    It looks as though he has an 07 convertible, So it's an R52.

    Whoops, my bad...

    And this where I pipe in and say if there was a Garage for the MINI in question a quick peek would have told me it was an 07 R52.

    Try Part # 51-16-7-133-702.

    That should be OEM home link mirror. It's about $200. Not sure if there is a different part number for the convertible, but it looks as though it's a direct swap.

    Hi all. It has been years since I have been out here, but you were so helpful in assisting me in programming my 20+ year old garage door opener with my 2007 MINI Cooper. Now 10 years later, the car is still going strong but my 30+ year old garage door opener died and it is too old to repair. I am seeing issues with new openers not necessarily working with older cars. I am looking at Chamberlain openers; some come with MyQ and others with HomeLink (but may require Compatibility Bridge). Anyone have any experience with either of these and if they worked? I don't plan to replace the car (still loving it after 10 years) but I hate to lose the built in remote if I can avoid it. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    I know that HomeLink works with Genie rolling-code openers, because that's what i have at my home. HomeLink is so popular, I can't imagine ANY garage door opener brand making their units incompatible -- that would be a sales-killer.

    Call Chamberlain's customer support and ask, but it seems like they would be nuts to not be HomeLink compatible.
