Just purchased the M5 shift knob/boot after years of contemplating. The leather around the emblem is wearing out on the original shifter. Thought about replacing it with a new one but wanted to see what the fuss is all about. It took me awhile to do this because there just wasn't a need(I guess there still isn't as the shifter isn't broken or anything, ha!) But will see why many of you went this route. Really appreciate the tips and pictures.

Just installed mine. I had to keep trimming until I could get the base ring to sit in place, as it kept popping out.

Now it stays in place after shifting through all gears multiple times.

I'll see how it goes over the next several days. If it bothers me, or pops out again, I'll just cut and re use the original boot, so ensure the ring snaps in.

Also, use a hair dryer to heat up and soften the glue, making removal of base ring easier.
