let's try to clarify.

I did an e90 automatic.
pull on the shifter to remove it.
this car had a leather boot. so I just pulled on the boot to remove it.
Once removed, grab the wood trim from the opening you now have after
removing the boot. pull gently. go in order clockwise or counter clockwise,
the trim has snap on tabs. undo one at a time.

at this point, be very careful of the idrive wire.
some have some slack, some don't.
Mine did have some slack so I did not unplug the idrive controller.

I hope that helps.
