I'm pretty sure that is part of the entire center console trim.

Thanks this is exactly what I was looking for. Might be from another car, but should do the trick i think (I assume all these controllers are the same size to fit the internal dimensions. I may try and use this to retrofit my older CCC trim rather than spending $300 on a new piece of plastic.

That's for the non-M3 center console trim. The M3 console trim has the iDrive controller trim edge built-in.

The drilling in the E60 console is covered by a separate/custom trim piece, it is not just drilling.

You are trying too hard to mess it up.
