fack! I just ordered the F30 M performance knob, do you have pics of your install? I'm afraid it's going to be too short for me too.

In for pics. I just ordered the F10 M5 illuminated knob and I'm now worried I'm going to have a hard time taking off the stock shift knob after seeing this lol. Did you ever figure out why it was stuck?

i just put mine into today, it's about 3/4 inch shorter than stock. A bit too short for me. Otherwise pretty good, as you get rid of the "goose neck"

After you ripped it apart, do you still the OEM's circuit board, light bulb, and connectors?

If so, if you don't want it, I'll take it off your hands, will pay for shipping.

Hey, let me know if you're interested in a custom extension piece from IND. We can try to do a group buy.

I've emailed them for a price quote for an extension adapter (behind the boot) that extends the stem by about 1 inch. So this piece would snap in to the OEM stem on one end, and your knob on the other. And I suppose since IND will be making a few at a time, you can ask for different lengths. Let me know if you're interested.

IND never emailed me back. too bad you threw it away, looks like you kept the top shift pattern? You can use it as pogs.

Haha I hate it when that happens. I HAD to put my ZHP knob on within a day of getting the M3, hated the stock on so much. Mine wouldn't come off either. Had to straddle the center console and pull as hard as I could.

P.S. at least you didn't have it come you and give a black eye. Still one of the funniest stories I've ever heard.

Drove the car today. I don't feel like switching the knob again so I'm just gonna deal with it for now. The performance knob is just to small for people with gorilla hands!
