I wouldn't call the install simple, mainly because there is very little space to work with (passenger console side). You will need to remove the glove box and loosen another gizmo to gain access to the resistor. Oh, there is also an air duct in front of everything! Whole thing took me a couple hours because I managed to replace it by working around the air duct (instead of removing). I took some pics if you are interested.
Mr Krod, you can not even imagine how helpful your DIY post is. Damned thing just went on my '01 M3, which I just bought 2 days ago. No warranty of course. Thanks again, now I know what to do.
