I really like the look of the m5/m6 knob. But I think it's a little bit to high up. Can I do something to make it fit lower on the gearstick?

Edit: Well, I took a look on the pics again, maybe it's not higher up then the M3 knob? just the size of the M5/M6 knob that make it's look higher up?

I see broken image links in the 1st page of the post...

The M5 wiring layout...

6 way know picture...

Shift housing picture...

wondering why these links are dead when the images were stored on the m3forum.net server? I thought the reason to do this was to safeguard the imagery for important posts like this?

It is a tad higher but I like it, your arm lays across it level without your
hand dropping over like the stock one.
