Let me know how it goes and what type/color you end up buying. If there's plenty extras, I may buy the rest off of you.
iDrive controller is easy to pop out. Put your shifter in Neutral and give it a good tug straight up. It'll come off. Center console will then come off. I think you have 3 connectors for idrive that clip off. There are squeeze tabs to pull the idrive controller off.
