I'm looking at doing an EC mirror retrofit to the convertible but I'm a little worried that on realoem all the R52 mirrors are listed as not compatible with R50 and R53, and vice versa. This is usually an indication of different mountings or different hardware in the mirror (315MHz receiver) on a convertible.
Does anyone know if the R52 can accept the mirror from other models?
I can't tell you definitively that they aren't, I would suggest the connectors are the same but the size and shape of the fitments is different. The cabrio mirror fits into a different location and holder to the standard r53 due to the roof.
