What a bizarre item to steal? The glass is the cheapest thing to replace in a wing mirror, so there is no obvious profit - unless the intent is simply to irritate people, preventing them from driving to work until they had bought replacement glass.

The drivers replacement glass for my car (Mercedes) is £300 + VAT. I would imagine that a BMW glass is in the same price range. It is "auto dim" and heated and comes with a German price tag...... The advice I would give to owner's of with folding mirrors on high end German vehicles is DON'T fold in the mirrors, in this position they can be removed easily in minutes

Maybe all mirrors can be recovered with a quick search of Ebay and gumtree?

They do fetch good money and it's obvious this is why they were stolen.....
