for the time and hassle to build your own box, I'd say find a coder or Indy that will do it for you. 10 minutes with Progman is all it takes.

that would be a temporary solution - this is a closed system, if you are low on oil, it's leaking somewhere. I'm lucky mine leaked but didn't take out any electronics with it.

you are upside down in the car value wise, either hold onto it until it's paid for or take a loss and cut your losses now.

my passenger side stopped working a while back, I can hear the motors turn but it doesn't move. Haven't fixed it yet as it's not a priority but I'll let you know when I do.

I spoke to soon - safelite installed a factory BMW windshield, but it's missing the brown/tan antiglare/UV tint - need to go back to their shop tomorrow, here we go again.

Update - Safelite was out this AM and replaced it at the house. Installer appears to have done a very nice job, and they did use the OEM BMW glass. Thanks for all of the input.
