Trim bases - differences between the M5 and M3:

Thankfully there is enough leather to use the M5 boot however the seams don't match the M3 base well(had to stretch and compress the leather a bit to make it fit the M3 ring correctly). Had a scare moment where I superglued the new knob to my finger(had a tiny bit of Superglue Gel residue on a finger, found out when I picked up the knob, didn't do any damage thankfully) but got the little bit of residue off with some cooking oil. Turned out nice:

I do miss the extra height the stocker had though. The BMW console kind of gets in the way now on shifting... I'll compensate I'm sure over time. Shifts feel better. Pretty easy mod.
