Yep and I've broken them both! To easy and cheap to not replace.

One thing to keep in mind though is that the factory connector has only 3 of the 6 holes actually molded. The replacement connector will have all 6 holes, so you'll want sealing plugs for those (3 per connector):

There's probably a BMW part number too, but I don't know it.

Ive also sucecssfully used https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail...MP/1-967616-1/ instead of the BMW part for the actual connector

Seems like a lot more work to get a used plug with wires and then tap into the harness.
Yes, this is what I'd recommend if the wiring is still intact. That way you don't have to worry about recrimping the wires.

Yep I think this is what I am going to try and do, but like I said earlier I couldnt find any part numbers. Once I get back to my place next week I will see what my options are.
