You have to use the plastic M3 trim ring (from the M3 boot) located at the base of the leather. It is necessary b/c the M5 piece is larger and shaped differently. The M3 piece clips into the console. That ring is the only part from the M3 setup I used. You can see the 4 clips from it protruding through the slits I cut in the leather. I folded the excess leather under the ring and snapped the knob in place. If you want to see the installed pic, I'll take a couple when I get home tonight.
