E36 Mirrors removal
This is a fairly easy DIY and only take like 5 minutes per mirror...
Stuby flat screwdriver
10mm socket wrench
As a warning... BRING WINDOWS DOWN.....
1) Remove the cover, use the stuby screwdriver and put it between the cover and the door, as seen in the picture, then push the scredriver away from your self, fairly easy there is only two tabs so once you here two "tac" noises it's loose, then just pull it up
here you can see the two tabs in question..
2) Disconnect the mirrors, make sure you pull as much wire out as possible from the door and simply disconnect the mirrors
3) Remove mirrors, the mirrors are held by 3 screws (10mm) just unscrew them but keep in mind that once last screw is loose, mirror might fall so keep holding on to the mirror all the way
here you can see how the mirror was attached easily
From here on it's just the opposite...
I replaced mine with m3 style ones...
Awesome DIY. I did the mirror upgrade myself as well and it was very simple. Great pics. :thumbup

Artic Silver M3 Mirrors for E36?
I just got a 1996 328is Automatic, as I've always been a huge fan of the 96- 98 328's and finally found a screaming deal that I couldn't pass up.. plus I knew the guy and what a stickler he is about his car (Immaculate shape.)
I never did like the mirrors or the front lights though... And this thread seems to be exactly what I needed to find for the former.
Question is, whereabouts do I get these mirrors, preferably electric, in Arctic Silver? Or am I going to have to paint these myself? And if I have to paint them myself (God forbid), where do I get the right paint, and who should I have it painted by?
