probably. Here's all you need to do though.

1. buy BMWs radio removal tool. The screws that hold it in place are very rare, and it is near impossible to get them out with an allen wrench.

2. With tool, unscrew screws. They are hidden behind little flaps on either side of the face.

3. Disconnect wiring harness from unit. If you're a wuss, disconnect the battery while doing this.

4. Plug old harness into adapter for new HU.

5. Follow new HU installation instructions.

very unlikely they would sell it to you. You may be able to "rent" it from them however. Depends on the parts manager.
