M5 SMG Carbon Fiber Shift Knob from EAS

So I was looking around their website.... and found these little gems.
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=1685



So my question is... will these fit on a e92 M3 with M-DCT? Hopefully one of the local EAS guys can answer my question.

Also, wow $450 is a bit pricey. Maybe its just me.

Not 100% sure yet - but it's something we're looking into, shouldn't be that hard.

If someone from the SoCal area would like to drop by - we'll take a look.

Would it be possible to offer maybe just a matte black version as well? If the CF is the reason behind the crazy pricing.

Or maybe just sell the cover piece?

Bump because I would really like to get an answer for my question posed above.

I'm alittle surprised more DCT guys aren't chiming in on this.

We have not had a chance to go further into the DCTs yet, but if there is someone local willing to volunteer, we're be happy to take a look.

It looks like the base (leather part is a different shape). Not sure if this is vital to install the piece or not but I would love one of these in black!

I think a good product would be this knob covered with the BMW CF leather for the M3 DCT.

Have you driven a car w/cf leather for more than a few days? It's not as durable as you think it is (scratches way too easily). Hence, it's probably not a good idea to have it on the shift knob. I'm assuming it's not on the shifter console area for the same reason.

No one has stepped up to the plate to volunteer - I have only one shift knob left.
