Climate Control Panel for an e39

I have a '99 e39 and want to replace the climate control panel, it's missing some buttons. Found some on ebad but none of them are listed as fitting my year. Is there really a difference between the '01 climate panel and mine?

Thanks in advance!

Well I have a 2001 530i and the button below the illuminated display is a 'MAX' button. On the pre face list version this button has a different use. So there is a difference between them

edjack, will they snap back into place? I was wondering if it wouldn't be just easier to get the whole panel.
thank,

Ok, found a complete, OE panel for a reasonable price. I was missing the fan button among others and that one alone was $39.00 so decided to go with the complete panel.

Thanks all, and best to'ya,
doc

PS, thank you to who ever puts the links for things on posts. Went with an ebad one but from a different seller.
