I definitely didn’t use the proper BMW tools, but I never plan to install another one again—at least on this car.

You need the right torx bit for a single screw connected to the center trim piece. You need some type of wedge to get the first clip loose from the plastic trim on the side of dash. I ended up using my hands to pull the the original controller out. That took a decent amount of force, but I managed not to break anything.
