Sorry for the confusion. The plastic cover splits into two pieces just like other BMWs. The trick is to use a credit card, start at the bottom, and just pry it open. It doesn't take much force and the card trick avoids breaking clips.

The mirror itself has a slide-on mount. This confused me because the videos of other BMWs I could find all showed press-on/twist-off mounts. Fortunately the guys that tinted my windows had taken the mirror off to do the highbrow so I could see scuff marks on the guides, otherwise I wouldn't have figured out how to remove it on my own.
