That's a bad suggestion on a day when i just spent the past four hours filling out Customs forms for the last of the mirror shipments.

Not planning to do any more of these for a long, long, long time.

Well done! Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of the M5/M6 SMG knob. Hopefully, someone will make an E46 M3 SMG knob with lights in the very near future.

I could understand if you aren't a fan of the look of the shifter in our cars, but the feeling of it is waaaaaaaaaay better than stock. The M5 shifter is perfectly fitted to the hand. It makes the stock SMG shifter feel like you are playin Ms. Pacman on Atari (which is a great game by the way)

I totally agree with you. Should have made myself clear. I was referring to the look. And yes, I haven't held one in my hand so I can't comment on how it feels. Its design looks more ergonomic than the M3's knob though. The overall install and procedures look clean and were very well documented.

I grew up with Pacman and Atari. Maybe that's why the M3's knob appeals to me more.
