x3 replacement mirror

hey guys,

I need to replace the passenger side mirror(entire assembly) on a 2012 x3 and it is pretty costly at the dealership($767+tax + paint, install myself).

I have called several body shops and parts shops for used or aftermarkets replacements with no luck.

Online I found a company "Kool Vue" that is apparently the world's largest manufacturer of OE replacement mirrors and I found an online store(not sure if I can mention the name, if not, PM for those who are interested) in the U.S. for about $230USD shipped unpainted.

I'm wondering if anyone has purchased an aftermarket mirror to replace their mirror for their x3, or in general from this brand? They seem to be the ONLY company that manufactures an OE replica for the x3...

btw, it is a base 28i model, no puddle lights, no electro chromatic, manual folding.

I'm also assuming this comes with the entire mirror including the glass.

I plan to order it tonight or tomorrow so hopefully someone with experience can chime in on this.
