That's what I wanted to do, but the leather boot seems to be well-glued to the base of the new F10 M5 knob.

any pics of this?

I plan on ordering but installing with an alcantara boot that I do you fasten the knob to the boot? glue? clips?

I wish they just sold the illuminated knob separately
I'll try to get a pic up tonight. It's basically a zip or cable tie secured from the inside of the boot, between the silver trim ring and the plastic ring that held the original boot in place. The boot is then pulled down over the zip, similar to the way the e-brake handle and boot are assembled. If you use a zip tie, put the female end on the front of the knob so you can't see the bump. I used a Velcro cable tie which lets the boot lay flat all the way around.
