What BMW auto gear knob/shifter models are X3 compatible?

I am looking for a X3 auto gear knob/shifter, i want an all black leather one if possible, i have seen a few for sale but they don't specifically say they are for an 2006 X3, my question is what BMW models are compatible with an 06 X3 for the auto shifter?

E46 ones seem to be. Maybe others.
Smaller market or interest for E83 so advertisers forget about including it in application list.

Thanks for the info, i actually have an E46 so i will try and swap them first just to make sure, but i see others also have similar issues with the silver crappy gear knob.

Part # for the black auto trans knob is 25 16 7 533 347. Some looking should find it fir just under $70.

I like it, but if I have a nit, it's texture does not match the other pebbled surfaces on the dash.

I am happy to live with a slight texture difference given the silver plastic looks totally out of place in my car so it would actually be an improvement IMO.

I love my new Black one from an E46. Looks right at home.
