BMW Performance Shit Knob question

Hi,
I can not find anywhere info or picture of Performance shift knob illuminated? Is it illuminated at all?

Except some mod of shift boot, is it plug and play part - I mean if it is illuminated - is the plug included with the Performance knob?


thanks

I think you are looking for the shift knob on the F10 M5. It has the same plug as the e92 M3 but is a shorter/heavier knob.

It also requires the modification you mentioned - lots of threads on this but basically you cut the M5 plasitic base ring from the leather boot, cut the M3 plastic base ring from the leather boot and mount the M3 plasitic base ring on the M5 leather boot.

Literally just plug the lighting element in, push the gear knob onto the shifting arm and snap the plastic base into place.
