I assume you mean shift KNOBS? Any BMW knob will work. This is the Z8 one I may install:

Yes, shifter knobs.

How will you install as the existing knob is attached to the boot?

Replace the boot with a standard 3-series one.

Any other shift knobs worth considering that would give the M3 that sporty touch?

No, it does not. Can't you remember where the gears are at night?
