Auto dimming mirror connector?

Hi Guys
I've seen a few auto dimming mirrors going on ebay recently and have considered this as a cheap upgrade (and cos I want all the toys). Is there a connector already built in to the M5 3.8 so I can just plug this mirror straight in?

cheers _Greg

I had it already in mine, so it was just plug&play.

If it "scares the crap out of you" you can always turn it off!

I like mine - saves me getting annoyed by idiots tailgating with their fog lights on.

also...whilst i love using xenons when i have them....the way they twinkle brightly behind you can be very offputting....especially on a dark motorway at night...the mirror helps for that too
