Picture below is just after the upper trim was removed, showing old switch in place.
Tested and works great, DAMN those lights are bright lol.
If I plan to do this, I prefer to do it this way. Paying $119 is nothing compared to paying for a brand new M3.
Also you will have an OEM European switch :-)
