You Must Do This Mod - F10 M5 shift knob

Just put in the F10 M5 shift knob in my M3. Amazing how such a simple thing transformed the driving experience. The lever is shorter than stock and falls more readily to the hand. The knob is heavier and moves with more precision. All the shift throws seem shorter, even though they're not. Everything is more controlled and more pleasurable.

There are many people expressing how they feel about their new shift knob in that thread.

Not a fan of this piece. Looks dated IMO.

Agreed with OP. The feel is much better with the F10 knob and by swapping the boot ring it looks perfectly oem.

Swapped the f30 m sport knob and boot and I have come to the same conclusion it's a just mod
