Thanks for the detailed pics. Great to hear it's plug-n-play. I am still waiting for the new center console, and looks like I'll be waiting for a while from what I've heard from the parts manager. No ETA yet. Don't know what the hold up is in Germany. There are at least six of them on back order in Australia.
Although you don't have the '09 iDrive, at least the look of the new unit is refreshing and fits in better with the interior trim compared to the bland aluminium knob.
