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.
Oh ok thanks, i think i just need to remove the plastic cover to expose wires to install a mirror tap, no need to remove the mirror itself.
