My E90 did not come with the Homelink either and it's something I wanted as I got really used to it on my E46. So I asked my dealer to quote me the price to order one and install it.

They informed me that it is possible to swap the non Homelink mirror with a Homelink one as long as your car is pre-wired for the feature (I think most cars are). My dealer also informed me that once the swap is done, some programming would have be done in order to activate it.

Needless to say that at a cost of over $1,000 to achieve this, I resorted to installing my garage door opener remote in my ashtray and using that instead.

Hopefully this helps you decide what to do.
