what all is involved in swapping out the OEM 330i knob with the backlit M knob? I'm wondering about the pre-wiring, if any, that is there? :dunno:

You will need to tap two additional wires for power for the bulb. Check with JonM, he sells the backlit M Knobs and has instruction on his site, www.leatherZ.com

Removal is simply yanking it straight up, hard.

UUC also makes a backlit aluminum knob and they supposedly,
supply instructions for either tapping the existing ashtray light
power or retrofitting the oem M pigtail back to the headlight switch.

So, there's a "hard way" and an "easy way."

yo dog, check this out: http://www.bmw330ci.com/DIY_M3_Shift_Knob.htm

(a good DYI. I've linked to bmw330ci.com twice today. Maybe there should be a thread that links to other good DYI pages?)
Not a bad idea. I know I've got a few threads on this forum with links to DIYs (the latest being the Ron Stygar page) :)
