Steering Column Replacement

Hi All
Sorry if this has been covered before, but, my probelm is this...
I have a 2.5i Z4 registered Dec 2006, which has been, almost, faultless in the six years I have owned it - until now! It has developed 'sticky steering syndrome' over the last few weeks - intermitently notchy and not pleasant to drive. I was under the impression that the problem was solved for 2006 cars and later, but that's obviously not the case.
I've seen posts suggesting drilling and lubricating the column, but I would prefer to replace it. Being an OAP, I really can't run to main dealer prices, and will probably have to do the work myself. I have been offered a 2008 Z4 column (BMW Nr. 32306786151AI01), and I wonder if anyone can confirm if this can be used as a replacement?
Cheers
Scorp.

Sometimes the column develops a little rust were it goes true the fire wall. Before replacing the column, you should really try lubricating it right where it passes trough the wall. No drilling just spray it and see...
