    M3 wing mirrors w/ indicators- Wiring?

    Iv been given a set of M3 wing mirrors from a mate, and iv bought a set of baseplates off fleabay for a tenner. The wing mirrors have indicators on them, but im not sure how i can wire them up.
    My mate said wire them to the side repeaters, but how would i go about getting the wiring the mirror, thru the door, and into the wing?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Taking it to the side repeaters will end up being a bodge job IMO

    The only way to do this is to drill the factory plastic door grommets, run the wiring into the car and pick them up there

    Sorry mate, i thought when you said it would be a bodge job you had a better idea in mind. My mistake

    These ones you can wire to the sidelights. Just wondering if you knew the purpose of this Autosparks?

    Cheers for the replies

    Bodge job if you take it to the side repeaters as you would probably take them out the door somehow and straight to them down the inside of the wing. I'm suggesting you drill the grommet, take the wires inside the car and pick up the indicator wires there
