Rear view mirror

I have the basic stock rear view mirror (without compass or home link) in my 2010 X5 so I am thinking of swapping it out. I found one on eBay and it is much cheaper than buying directly from BMW? Is it a simple swap or is there more to it than that? There is usually more to it so it figure I would ask. Thanks!

FYI homelink doesn't work on all gates. Not sure why you'd even pay for it. Universal remotes that clip on your visor are tiny and tasteful these days. AND you already have a compass on your nav-screen.

I don't have NAV. I really just wanted teh Auto dim feature and teh compass but for $300 I can probablive live without both.
