    There's a massive thread with all the info you need as a few of us, me included, have done this.

    You'll need new mirror housings, and depending on the spec of your car both the passenger and driver's door modules replaced (PDM and DDM) or if you've got a higher specced model (like my Elite) I only needed to replace one of the modules (PDM I think it was).

    Have a search for that thread - all the info is there.

    I did it myself, except for the programming bit as like kenp my (legit) Vaux-COM doesn't do that so I had to pay a dealer to do it with Tech 2. As I had the higher spec DDM and the relevant wiring (and had the dimming rear-view mirror) I also then added the dimming door mirror glass as it was simply a straight swap to then have it dimming.
