Guys does anybody know the difference in the connector for the side mirrors.
I discovered that there are mirrors with same funtions but different pin amounts in connector.

My car has 5 pins but the new ones i bought without knowing what i have are 3 pins.

From what i red bits and pieces on the net is that 3 pins have a bus system. What does this mean and can i convert my car or the mirror?

I don't know anything specific to help but bus system refers to the CAN serial data system standardized for modern cars. Maybe the 5 pin mirrors use a separate control module while the 3 pin include the module inside the mirror? At any rate could be major incompatibility and I'd check with dealer parts department.
