    anyone know if there's an easy switched 12v source at the mirror?

    On our 09 r56 there's a green switched wire for the sunroof, easy access and it shuts off when the car enters sleep mode

    does a 05 R53 have a similar switched hot up at the sunroof control?

    nobody knows? I found info so easily on our r56 I'm surprised it's hard to find stuff on the r53 as it's older

    Since power folding mirrors were never an option to my knowledge on a gen1, and the only wires that might be there would be mirror heat (an option on some cars), I think you will need to fish a wire...
    You would have the wires for the tiny stepper motor to aim the mirrors, but don't think those would be useful in any way, both due to have and the way they are used....

    I think there is power up there. My V1 was wired to a source at the mirror base. for reference it's a very late 06 with rain sensing and auto dim.

    If you are taking about the headliner, sure I bet!!:aureola:
    For some reason I was thinking side mirrors!!:mad2:
