I have the same issue on my '07 e90. The piece is on order and It will be replaced under warranty. I am having additonal issues and fighting with BMWNA to replace the flaking A/Y shift knob and flaking paint on the console trim (The outside edge facing the next to the driver's seat cushion). The dealership told me it would be a cost (&500.00) to me. I am currently in the process of badgering BMWNA. I have owned 6 BMWs since the mid a070's without issues of this kind; it is distressing that BMWNA has not agreed to rplace without question.
