Need Help Installing DCT Console Trim and New "M2" button

Hi all.

Just got in my DCT Console trim from iND, and the old one popped off easily, but I don't seem to have the tool to get the transmission aggressiveness button off (see pictures below). Can anyone help me figure out what tool I need to purchase (a link and info would be great as well haha)

Also got the red M1 and M2 buttons and I can't get the OEM ones off (I have the iND interior tool kit with the wire/pry tool and can't seem to pop them out!)

Photos attached!

Itís hard to tell by looking at your pics on my mobile device, but I think I see at torx fastener. If so, you can typically buy individual bits at HD or lowes or you can buy a folding set.

I changed that same console, and yes I recall it being a torx bit. Don't recall what size though I think it was a T20. I got a folding torx set at harbor freight for $7.

That looks about right! I'll pick up the screwdriver/bit at some point tomorrow!

Any ideas about the stupid M1 and M2 buttons...?

To put the red m buttons in you have to take the steering wheel trim off and the shift paddles. It requires removing the airbag and I find it easier to just take the steering wheel off but it can be done with it on.
You can follow this DIY to get the steering wheel off unfortunately the pictures no longer work but it's a great tutorial https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1204092
