illuminated shiftknob

Yesterday i tried to make ligthed shift knob from stock bmw e46, installed 1 light from random old cars dash , drilled few holes through knob and its done , tell me what u think. The hardest part was to scratch that silver thing so light can go through gear numbers. Spent like 3 hours total no not scratch the plastic, used needle and toothpicks. The last picture looks realy bright because i tried to use different types of resistors to make light as stock as possible, looks oem now.
( sr if i made mistakes 2nd language)
