2009 idrive buttons

Does anyone know if you can buy the buttons for the new idrive? I ruined the option button on mine and the black color is peeling off and you can see white plastic now. Does anyone also know how to take these buttons off?

Red Bull for me. Now the controller has a just noticeable stick to it. I will use a cleaner instead of lube, but then I have to worry about the cleaner getting to the contacts.

Lesson learned:
Don't drive aggressively with sticky drinks in the car.
