I don't have the part # here this second, but can get it to you later. Yes, it requires drilling, and with a SPECIAL metric uni-bit. The bit has to be shallow enough to not allow the leading point to contact metal opposite the inside of the hole. I found it for $52! The handle part, with a BMWCCA discount was $20. Dealer did it for $95, and they take the responsibility if they screw up. My dealer (Richmond BMW) had done a number of them, so it was no sweat, why take a chance to save a lousy $20. Looks great and they painted the raw edge to protect against rust. I'll send a pic if you want. It is NOT EXACTLY the same as the factory, but you have to have them side by side to tell the difference. The my2k factory button is not as tall and the handle is a little smaller.
