You take off the plastic triangular cover inside your car (on the inside of where your mirror is stuck to your car). I think there's a foam insulator in there that you just pull back. Then there are 3 screws you need to undo...

Once these are undone, the mirror could fall off the outside, so I suggest doing this with the window down and door open so you can use one hand for screwdriver and one hand for holding mirror.

Then there's a simple plug or two for power/heat that just pop in/out.

Regarding purchasing the part; I would think it's cheaper to buy a mirror from someone used (someone who may have upgraded to M3) and then have it painted your colour...
