I also have an '01 and it came from the factory like the '02+ models. I have only seen one other two piece/one piece shifter like yours (I know what your talking about). I think they are around 150 dollars to replace new.

Are you asking how much a one piece boot/knob cost? I have 1 for sale if you need one.

All of the E46M3s come with a one piece shift knob and boot. If your replacing the shift knob with an after market I suggest using the OEM 330 shift boot. Available at the dealer for $56.

Just tell the dealer that the knob is loose and it pulled off while you were driving - chances are they'll replace it for the one-piece for free - assuming your car is still under warranty.

Really, $56 for 3 series shift boot - I paid $68 (with my 10% disc). I ended up returning it as I got a different boot.
