how to get clown nose....???

I'm installing OEM alarm kit soon.
but I discovered that I don't have the LED clown nose under my rear-view mirror. Is it a must to have them? can I just get the clown nose and install on my stock mirror? where to get them? or I have to buy the new whole mirror?

I called circle bmw and they said I have to get the whole rear-view mirror which cost about $300 and I don't think I believe him that I can't just add a clown nose on my stock mirror.

Any ideas guys?

unless you retro fit a clown nose, you will have to buy it from the dealer.

Don't certain M3's have the LED imbedded in the mirror, as oppossed to having a red "clown nose"? You should have some sort of LED in the mirror? If not I guess your SOL and need to buy one.

I don't use mine. I'm willing to sell it if I can take it off and it doesn't affect anything, and looks ok. My alarm isn't connected to it.
