OK, this was SO simple, it will take longer for me to get this post up on the board than it took to do the actual work.

One thing to remember; I ordered and installed part # 51 16 1 926 845, non-heated glass, for $35. The heated glass part # is 51 16 1 926 853 and is $70. Mirrors don't get frosty when the M3 is kept in the garage, so I'll put the extra $35 into something else.

OK, this is the box:
