E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Mein Auto: 2005 645Ci Convertible
Replacment for the Chrome/Titanium "insert" on old-style shift knob?

I have an '05 645Ci, and like many the fake metal insert on the shifter has flaked and looks terrible. The rest of the shifter looks good, so I was wondering if there is a replacement for the insert (or if anyone has one lying-around in good shape). I saw in another thread it does come off, but I'm fairly certain there is no part number for just the insert. Any ideas?

On a related not the brushed titanium trim on the shifter surround has "rubbed-off" in spots and exposed the bright chrome underneath. I don't suppose there is anything that can be done with that other than stripping and repainting or replacement?

Thanks,

Greg
