Now that I have the knob in hand (don't go there!) it shows: the connector can be taken off by removing the individual pins (using a mini screwdriver) The matching opposite male connector is part# 61136925634

Additional reference with picture: Z4 illuminated shift knob with connectors

All needed parts listed on here (first 3 items): Connector parts

using the correct BMW certified color coded wires (fi brand Leoni type FLRY) connected to the nearest dashboard light (using new crimping pins that combine 2 cables on one pin), you could do a neat non-splice retrofit.
