Hi all,
Ordered a brand new key from BMW, tried to program it but it isn’t working.
I have a 2005 R53 with auto dipping rear view mirror, where is the remote receiver on the car? I’ve heard it is in the rear view mirror and also possibly in rear ¾ panel?
Can anyone confirm and I remove the auto-dipping mirror?

On my R53 the remote was in front of the mirror under the headlining. Twist the mirror to remove it, It's on a bayonet fixing.
Have you tried syncing the remote? Instructions should be on here somewhere.

Hi Gerry thank you - yea tried syncing but it just won’t work. I think the sensor has gone.

I have the auto dipping mirror, it seems to be a different fitment?
