Anyone tried to retrofit their center dome light?

The X5 comes with two different center dome lights (over the back seats).

One (standard on the 3.0) has just one large light that is door/switch activated. The other is identical except it also includes two map lights (like the front seats).

I'd like to remove my standard light and replace it with the other dome light (so my son can read in the back).

Do you think it is difficult? Has anyone tried it?
I am fortunate to have unique press cars delivered weekly, but I own:

'16 BMW X5 xDrive35i M Sport 8AT
'15 Volkswagen Golf TDI 6MT
'86 Porsche 911 Turbo 4MT

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
