F10 M5 Shift Knob = Lighted ZHP Knob?

I noticed the F10 M5 shift knob lights up and it looks like the ZHP knob.

Could it be the solution we've all been waiting for?

Has anyone tried it?

i believe it will be a simple swap (assuming it's the same as the 1m)

Ha I saw that too, and was thinking starting a thread. It sure looks like the ZHP knob, too bad I just bought one, prob will be quicker to just to DIY, LED conversion that is. Should have a part number hopefully.

I am one of many that thinks that ZHP knob looks horrible. I would never put that one in my M or BMW vehicles. Looks cheap and it is.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm looking forward to hearing more about it when the M5's finally get here.

You can't deny that it's a step up from the OEM M3 shift knob - Same leather quality with metal / weighted construction. OEM is lightweight plastic / rubber internal construction. I know because I have disassembled the OEM knob...

Very true. When I made mine, you could see that it was just all plastic. Felt terrible. I am more than happy with my lighted ZHP.

you'll need to cut off M5 boot and re-use OEM boot.

For those worried about the connector, swapping the pin connectors should be a simple switchover between the two, if they're not already an exact match. As isugoo said, the boot will need to be cut off or attached to the M3 boot-ring.
