FOUND: Sunvisor pivot - the one with the electrical contact

As the subject says, anyone have one? It goes on the inner side of the right lighted sunvisor. Any color is fine. Thanks.

EDIT: BMW of South Atlanta has one ($9), and will ship it Monday. Not sure if it's tan or gray, but i can easily spray it black.

Never had one. My car is an '85, and the lighted vinyl visor was wired differently, but I have a newer set of leather visors I'd like to install. I'm also upgrading the lighting in the visor, with 3 LEDs on either side of the mirror, so the lighting will be white and bright.

What happened? There was a reply here from someone who recommended getting the part from a 7-series, which was around $3 from the dealer. I was on my way out the door and didn't have time to reply, but I'll definitely check out the recommended part, and I offer thanks to who ever it was. realoem shows them as NLA for the 6's.

Dean,
What does the upgraded lighting on the vanity mirror look like? Where are you getting it?
It now look like I will be in Orlando at the end of Feb, so if all goes well, maybe we can get together!

They're not grossly different, just leather on the new ones, vinyl on the Iold ones. I got this color, and I'm going to dye them black with SEM products. The mirror pops out easily. I'll post some pics when i'm finished. I'm just using some LEDs I have from other projects.
