i'm getting a shift knob from Twm as well.

how did you solve the boot issue? did you separate your existing one from the oem knob? or did you buy a another boot?

i want to preserve my oem knob, so i have to get another boot. leatherZ makes one, but man is it expensive. interested in seeing how you went about this.

I cut my original knob off the end of the boot. After that I folded the edges over and secured the fold with hot glue. The final result looks great.

Yeah let me know if you have any other questions. I really love my TWM shift knob and I cannot say enough good things about it.

Car looks pretty good ~ I like cars with big wings and your car certainly qualifies to wear one!

Only thing I would change is the wheel color but is a personal thing. Great job on the build, I enjoyed reading your documentation.

Sometimes I look back and regret not just plunking down some cash and ordering a Speed Yellow e90 sedan when I had the chance, now that ship has sailed

Not speed yellow, but http://www.ebay.com/itm/221306972836

Dunno about the bamboo interior, though.

Cool, I never even knew such a color E90 m3 existed! Isn't this color originally for the Z4?

If "only" it was a 6-speed manual I would probably be calling the dealer to discuss further. The tan interior can easily be swapped out but not the tranny sadly
