Auto Shift Knob Replacement

Just a quick note to all of those with auto shift knobs that have worn out or look a little "used". I was looking at a BMW performance shifter that was designed for the current generation 1 and 3 series and when I got to feel it I was hooked - the alcantara felt great so I ordered one and set out to figure out how to retrofit - which turned out to be a non-issue - it popped right in.

The silver is a perfect match for the cup-holder and for the steering wheel trim and it looks like it was meant to be there. There is a matching alcantara shift boot but I didn't get that - it would require more - but not too difficult - modding to make it fit. I attached a picture of it and the part number is 25 16 2 153 758. It is sold on ebay for $115.

Now it's on to the real mods - new interior trim (Madeira Walnut from an M6), SS exhaust, and some new tires/rims and springs coming in the spring!
