I'm sure you could get used to it.

FYI I am selling my set of gloss black mirror housing and my set of matte black. The matte ones are non auto dimming and non power folding. You can find them in the FS section.
I finally got my wide angle mirrors from Rome Italy (have relative there). I love them. They make me feel a whole lot more secure changing lanes on the freeways. It seems I have no blind spot at all. I did get the dimming heated ones and they just snapped right on with the help of the service manager at BMW. They cost a bundle, however. $318 Euro's, incl tax, each. The BMW part numbers are: Left side: 51168041951
Right side: 51168041952

Great mod for this car!

Wow - was this for the entire mirror housing or glass only?

EUR318 for the glass? Must have included VAT but still really steep.

Yes, even without VAT, it's about 3-400 a piece USD.
