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: BMW 650i
Auto Gear Knob Replacement

Hello everyone, I have a 650i convertible and have just swapped out the stock auto gear shift know for the newer illuminated style and would like to know if anyone else has done this?

If so does anyone else's gear knob stayed illuminated even though the car is switched off and locked up. I've left it for a good hour now but it doesn't seem to want to go out. Is that normal?

Appreciate any advice members can give.

Cheers Neil

I have the illuminated shifter, the light stays on for quite some time but within less than an hour it does turn off.
Does the orange light at the shift indicator in the center console turn off? both light should turn off at the same time. If only the orange light turns off and not the green light on the shifter you have some wires connected the wrong way.
