If you're completely incapable of doing it and Murphy's Law is your bestfriend then have a shop do it. However, it's simple enough to do at home. I recommend just taking your time and going step by step carefully. You'll have more satisfaction seeing them because you did it yourself and feel that the money is more justified. haha. In any case, congrats on the M3 mirrors.

Just wondering can anyone use any old sport steering wheel and add the wires and paddles or does it originally have to have these from the factory?

You can add them, mines didn't come with paddles and I retrofitted it onto my car.

You can either make one yourself for around $50 and three hours of your time or buy the one from BMS for $150. I went the cheap route and made my own for fun an experience.
