Great Writeup! The Overhead Light/Switch console looks very similar to the console in my new X3 (F25). Looks like BMW is practicing design re-use. Perhaps my mind is dull, but I am still unclear about how to "pop" the console down. Did you start with he inner piece (the sort of trapezoid shaped part with the lights and switches) or the big plastic housing with the openings for the motion detector. The way I read your instructions, the inner piece has 4 plastic clips and the outer piece has 6 metal clips. If I understood correctly, you were not able to fully separate the 2 pieces. My apologies, but if you can clarify this, it will give me the best chance of not breaking something on my one month-old car. BTW, I had my radar detector hardwired in my E93, and that was a breeze, once I saw how the clips worked. Thanks in advance!
