2 things......

1) how does this install? can you do it yourself?

2) how do you get into your car if the battery is dead?

I want to do that....What should I order from the dealer??? The only downside is that I can't roll the windows back up from the Driverside door anymore. I would have to do it maually from the inside.

easy install, just pull back rubber cover unscrew alan screw screw this one in... less than 1 minute. if my battery dies, i think i can still crawl in from my trunk. if that doesnt work ill smash my windows...

Better hope your battery never dies, otherwise how will you get in your car??:dunno: :dunno:
That's not something to really worry about. First of all, how often does your battery die? Second, there's something called BMW roadside assistance.

i got my bumper and mirrors painted at the same time... when i was talking to the guy on the phone i told him i just had a bumper and mirrors. he quoted me $250 and then i told him i had that cover. he said just bring it along and he'll paint it at that price of $250... its so small...

that really wouldnt help... cause if you cant get your door open and you have it in the trunk, cant replace it on the outside, so your ass is still scrawling up to the front and unlocking the door... hahahahahhaha:lmao:

You mean these things install from the outside of the car??? Anyone can unscrew the stock fixtured with the keyhole while the car is locked? That is scary........

no, you cant switch the cover to the lock cyclinder from the outside.... you gotta open the door to change them
