I have no idea what you are talking about...

The was no trouble fitting the new mirror on. Albeit my new mirror came from a 2006 E90 and my car is a 2001 330i without Asist or Nav.

The flat clown nose/hidden compass mirrors is relatively new mirror so I can't speak for how that mirror fits. But if you say you got it to fit on an E46 then more power to you and the rest of us who follow suit.
