New Shift Knob

Got my new shift knob from LeatherZ (very helpful and highly recommended from 3-series forum) Knob is about an inch shorter than stock X3 knob. Weighted (5.4 ounces) and all leather. A little hard to get the original knob off -- sitting in drivers seat put tranny in 2nd, release hand brake, lean over and lift hard using your legs and back. 2 hands needed and it pops off. New one goes right on and does not leave a gap at the boot. Very smooth, positive shifts. Really like it.
