    I'm looking to pic this car up, but it doesn't have Homelink...I wanted to know if I could install it later?

    I guess you could retro fit but I would just use the garage clicker because I'm a cheap lazy bastered.

    It is integrated into the rear view mirror. You can purchase a mirror that has the Homelink feature and install it in place of the mirror that is currently installed. FYI the Homelink mirror has no digital compass, but is still auto dimming. Expect to pay around $500 from a dealer, they can also install it for you. If you want to save money, you can look elsewhere for one, maybe even used, not to mention you should recoup some cost from selling the original one, and just install it yourself.

    Here are the part numbers: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=VB73&mospid=49550&btnr=51_5830&hg=51&fg=40
