Side mirror number of pins?

Hi,
My right hand side mirror was recently vandalized, and I discovered that there seems to be two different connectors. One 5-pin and one 10-pin. Does anybody know the difference between the two?

I had a soft top with a glass rear window installed on my -99. I don't mind the reduced visibility, since I use my outer rear view mirrors as well. No regrets!

Not today, but a couple of days ago I had mine in the shop for a small service, new brake fluid and installation of a B&M short shifter. Huuuuuge difference!

The rev counter looks great, but I have to point out that it's whitegauges.net. If you go to whitegauges.com, you get a page full of malware. :/

I change the brake fluid at the beginning of every season. I track the car occasionally and after having experienced boiling fluid once, I decided to not do it ever again. :D

I installed a Chinese Zeepin DY7098 in my -99. I also installed Copilot GPS for navigation, which works fine. It takes a little while before it gets a signal from the sattelites, but other than that,...

Well, the welder screwed up his math and instead of increasing the diameter of the 12mm holes, he added an 8mm hole on each side. Beacuse 12+8=20, right? :P
Anyway, I decided to give it a shot and...

I occasionally drive my parent's 2006 997 C4. Although it's a great car, it's just not as nimble as the Boxster. Of course it's faster, but I feel like I have to use a bit of force to show it who's...
