Challenge - E9X M3 Tri-Color Collection Alcantera 6spd Knob w/ Boot - First Pics

Challenge had begun offering their new Tri-Color Collection of BMW M interior parts and accessories this summer with many great reviews. We decided to push the evelope a bit recently with out interior craftsmen and got them to make a full Alcantera 6spd OEM shift knob with the oem light functions. This is the perfect addition to those with a competition edition steering wheel or BMW performance wheel.

We took a few photos the other day and thought we would share. I know some people has asked if was possible over the past year or so.

Production parts come ready to install with lower trim bezel etc.

Can you do an alcantara DCT boot to match the performance line? With the white/silver stitching?

The rate of wear should be on bar with your alcantera steering wheel. You actually touch the steering wheel far more than the shift knob it would think.

Nice! You need to offer the new M5 knob though. It is shorter, heavier and more sturdy than the M3 knob. And it lights. There are threads about others doing this mod. The plastic clip ring is different, but you could put in an M3 ring, or leave it out altogether as others sell it.


Cheers.

We have looked at doing this as some of the other retro fits the M5 boot looks a little bulky stuffed on the M3 trim ting. Id like to make it fit "right" if we do it.

BTW, our Alcantera setup still lights etc as well.

Yea, that's cool. I figured it did but just mentioned that about the M5 knob. The benefit comes from the heavier and shorter knob, but it is lit up like the M3 knob with the same electrical connector for the light. I'd like to see the M5 knob mated with your Alcantara boot with tri-color stitching. I've thought about doing this myself, acquiring the M5 knob (with attached boot that I'd throw away) from Tischer and an Alcantara boot from someplace like LeatherZ. But, I've been way to busy (or lazy, you choose) and too cheap to have done this already.


Cheers.
