I got this installed a few days ago and just wanted to put this option out there for my fellow bmw owners.

It's from Function First and being the thing you touch the 2nd most in your car (after the round thing between your legs) it's a real change you can both see and feel. I went from the factory knob to the zhp knob to this. Needless to say my mint zhp knob will be sale as soon as I finish this post.

It came from Function First, which seems to be a Porsche focused company (found them on Rennlist) but the knobs fit our BMW's perfectly, and I learned after getting mine that the owner actually dd's a 6mt e90 M3.

If your car is a garage kept 2nd car like mine, the aluminum knob is ideal. The added weight, even over the zhp knob seems to blast through the inherent notchiness and smoothed the selector transitions out a bit. The grip position is so awesome in that it's a beautifully simple design that happens to feel most effective, (short of a full blown extended race shifter). If you daily your car and it sits in the sun (or extreme cold) you might opt for the delrin knob (which I also have and like a lot).

Anyway, bump for a cool company with a lot of positive reviews over on Rennlist, and at least one (mine, I haven't looked for others) on here.

I've got a delrin knob in the same design from this company as well. As you would expect it handles heat much better.

It's at least as tall as the factory knob. The difference was noticeable going from my ZHP knob to this one.
