Today, me and qqbennyqq tried to hardwire his 01 m3.... so no homelink wire... we took the hardwire kit from my car (04) and transferred it to his... grounded to the same spot (the screw area) and now we realized we dont know which wire to tap into....

We found a white 5 or 6 pin plug on the left side of the roof wrapped up and found 5 wires... RED/GREEN , BLUE/GREEN, GREEN/YELLOW, BROWN/BLACK, and i forget the last one.. we basically tried all of them.. didnt work...


OH yeah. we jacked up his moonroof wire.. we cut it trying to tap into the RED/GREEB wire (the power it think) .. hahah now he has ghetto tape around it with wires just tied.. sunroof works though.. but we need help..
PLEASE help....

check the Mad Russian site for the V1 DIY, same set-up will work for the 8500, IIRC.

that DIY is for cars with homelink NO? We couldnt find the plug that was shown in the site. All we found were a plug for the moonroof, and another plug with like 4 greenwires and 1 red/gray wire and 1 black/brown wires.... plz help i feel so naked without the radar detector on
