Need to install a motor lock in door and connect it to the power supply. In doors do not need to change anything.

Brave project. I am not convinced because there seems to be a gap after the soft closure. I don't know whether the video is deceptive or there is really a gap Alex.

Maybe the video is? All locks closes gently! Everything works as the OEM locks BMW E63 6 from the factory! Maybe not clear on the video?

Awesome and skillful mod on your part. Having said that I've never quite been a fan of the softclose doors even though both my bmw's have it. I've never found it that useful. Innovative and neat yes, useful no. Not trying to start a flamewar on subject, just don't see such a need. I can shut my doors pretty easily.
