as an update....

I took the GL to the dealer and they spent two hours switching the covers.

the hard part is popping the mirrors off.. if you break the driver one.. it will cost you $1300! glad I let them do it.

Curious as to why you need to remove the covers?

I added chrome mirror covers that I got off of ebay (from China)

very nice and OEM fit.
