Here is a picture.

Were you successful in changing your gear selector unit and did it need to be coded to your car?

Did you keep your broken one to see how it can be repaired?

Lastly, the blue connector for the iDrive control, is there anything special needed to get it off? I couldn't get it out at all and i was worried I was going to break the cable?
