Little M5 Mirror Motor Gear

So, Stripped My Passenger M5 mirror.
This is the part of the gearing attached to the motor inside the mirror that's goosed.
Does anybody know where I can get this little gear. ?
I know there's a possibility of buying a wrecked mirror off eBay or such. It's highly possible this part is gone in any non functioning donor mirror. I won't rule it out though if a mirror came available.
Thanks in advance.

You might do a search here for "broken mirror" or similar...I seem to recall a few people who had damage to their mirror due to someone hitting it, etc, which MAY leave the gear useable- contact them via PM or post in their thread, see if they respond.

UPDATE ON THIS:
I've given the toothless little motor gear to a local wizard who is going to try to fabricate up a new gear.
And also a kind fellow bmwdriver.net forum member put into my hand this very evening a broken Rhs m5 mirror.
Hopefully the gears are not sided, Left and Right.

So. I've put my mirror back together with the RHS donor gear that's intact. (Has all its own teeth)
And tomorrow I will fit it back onto the car.
This whole endeavour will solve two questions.
1. Obviously, Can I fix the mirror. ?
2. Will fellow M5 mirror owners have a source to buy this little gear from (hopefully the wizard comes good) ?
I'll report back ASAP.

SUCCESS.
The donor RHS mirror motor gear was the same.
Fitted it earlier.
Now the mirrors are A1.
Working perfectly.
Thanks to all who read the thread.
Especially Thanks to PhilipCork.
Much obliged buddy.
