Retro Fit Folding Mirrors

I'm thinking of retro fitting electric folding mirrors to my Golf R as I want to get it as many options as possible. I've found these on eBay:

I take I just need to fit them and then code them in so the folding feature works? Any pointers would be great!

I bought a set of right hand drive folding mirrors with the correct window motors and the switch, all 2nd hand off ebay as a kit from a breaker and fitted them to my 6R.  They worked perfectly and didn't require any coding.  I notice the ones in your link are from Germany - will they not have a right side dipping mirror whereas we need a left side one?

A good point! And I'll also need the mirror switch as well as mine currently doesn't have the folding mirror feature. Knowing me, I'll order some and get some LED puddle lights and carbon fibre covers as well, may as well do it all in one hit!

 

EDIT: Had a look at the part numbers on the eBay ad I linked, they seem to match UK cars so may be onto a winner there.

Dragging up my old post, but I've got a small issue. My mirrors are all fitted and coded in, but the driver's side fold in/out is inverted so when the switch is in the folded out position, it folds in and vies-versa.

 

I believe that I need to swap the positive and earth wires round in the plug but does anyone know which wires they are (I assume the plug has numbers on it)? Any help is appreciated!

Sorry I know this is old, but incase anyone else gets this, you need to swap 14 & 15 around.
