I was about to pull the trigger on this amazon piece but I’m way too anal about the details and the X not lighting up would’ve drove me crazy. So just got the whole damn thing together will the radio panel. Should be here next week.

On the aftermarket units, or mine at least: The X lights up, but does not change between white/amber. The P does not illuminate.

Actually, I just looked at things again and the P *does* illuminate. So it's just the X remaining white at all times.

please post pics of your crystal shifter illuminated in comparison to what the factory crystal shifter looks like illuminated.

I'm strongly considering getting this mod but want to know what I'm in for.

The videos have him working on the front of the gear shifter - was it hard to access and unscrew that with the rest of the unit still installed in the car?

No the shifter is an easy install. There is room to unscrew and install, no problem.

Did you happen to get the part that you need to get your car going again?

Put all originals back and towed it to dealership. It was the console piece that got fried if you don't disconnect the battery.

Also when you change the idrive controller you need to disconnect the battery.
