1.... take the trim around the knob... its very fragile so be careful...

Thanks fellas! What was confusing me was the leather that ibanezking mentioned that needs to be cut. So did either of you cut any leather to remove your knob.
I have a Turner Motorsport CF shift knob (for manual tranny) that feels AMAZING to hold (it's the knob I have in my 323i now), so I want to put this in the M3 since I prefer the feel of this knob... hopefully there won't be any issues putting an E46 knob into an M3.
