  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi there good folks. New BMW owner here. Got myself a 2012 535i 6 MT. Love it so far. However, as with any car, there's a few things I'd change. First and foremost is the shift knob. I just hate how light and plasticky it feels. Tried to do some research but couldn't find any useful options. If...
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi All. I had to replace the AC cover and vent along with the start button due to wear and tear. The AC vents, the sides broke which caused all the vents to fall. The start button was faded. I had to disconnect the AC/ Hazard Buttons and the start button to remove the AC vent, I noticed the...

    2009 BMW 535i I came to this website to get help. This seems to be the best source of information to fix not so common problems. So here goes. My 2009 BMW 535i is experiencing a gear selector malfunction. I discovered the electrical 12 pin ribbon under the shifter has cracked and deteriorated...

    Howdy Troops. E65 ( 2006 ) related question. Has anybody experienced the following problem ? When attempting to select either D or R using the gear shifter, there is a 2 second delay before it automatically returns to P. Therefore unable to move !! There are no warnings on the display...

    Hi all, my shifter is a little sloppy, mileage is 105k and has had a recent clutch. I pulled the gear gaiter off and had a look, the bushes look ok, is it likely to be a problem i need to address from underneath? Also the AC drivebelt is missing, so obviously no AC. How would i access the...

    Hi all, So I was taking my e92 320d M Sport for a nice spirited Sunday drive down some country lanes earlier today when I noticed a clinking/whining/grinding noise in 6th gear, I was doing around 60 at the time and it seemed to be speed dependant as to how loud it got. Once I realised that the...

  19. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Just got a 2006 650 with auto trans that is in great shape but the leather and titanium trim shift knob looks old and worn. I was going to change it for a new one but wanted to ask if anyone has been able to change it for a different one, perhaps a nicer one like in the newer models. I don't...

    I just bought a short shifter off of ebay, and I am wondering if it possible to install it without needing to get under the car. I have a '95 325i and I am trying to improve my performance inside the car, rather than spending a bunch on the engine (which I will do anyways) but I don't want to...
