what are my options for aftermarket m5 mirrors?

I have an 03 525i and so far i have narrowed it down to umnitza's Euro m5 mirrors. Also, I've learned that if i am to buy from Umnitza:
1) i need the 12 pin connectors.
2) the auto-tilt and memory functions will work with the mirrors they offer.
3) If i plan on not buying the switch from the dealer I WILL still be able to fold the mirrors upward manually (by hand).
4) The price at which they are selling the mirrors seems very reasonable.
Am i correct about these?

My question is, what other options (ebay sellers, companies, etc) should i pursue before buying from Umnitza? Any input from people who have bought from Umnitza and/or elsewhere will gladly be appreciated.

Thanks.
