Try GM parts direct. They might be cheaper. Good luck with it Jim, I wouldn't be able to take my eyes of it either.

the glass itself heated
gm#12482406 for the right
#12482404 for the left

I show a retail price of $90 but think you can get it for half so $45ish?

The fsm shows
Remove the mirror and the plastic backing plate (your old mirror)
pull the assembley out the mirror housing
remove the jack screw from the backing plate

Snap the jack screw into the power drive unit
Push the mirror assembley in close to the power drive unit
Align the swivel on the power drive unit to the pivot points on the mirror backing plate(your new mirror)
Push in the backing plate until a 'click' is heard

I'm going to wait till my Bro-in-law (Body shop manager) gets back from vacation and have him check a price before I order.

Those prices seem pretty reasonable to me just because my mom when she was in a pissed-off mood went flying out of the garage and ripped the outer 2" off of the mirror. (she broke it clean off, the mirror stayed intact for the most part though, it was on a slight angle.) JUST the mirror cost over $300 from what I remember.

Man, I did that in my wife'* old 88 Grand Prix, we were late to go someplace,
and she was standing right outside the garage door on the passenger side, so I did it *right in front of her*.
She stood there in horror at the mangled mirror housing dangling from her door,
and I just said "Come on, get in the car, we're late. I'll get it fixed next week!"

Got one at a local wrecker and paid my body shop to paint it and put it on.
It was worth it just to see the look on her face. It was priceless.
