This Genuine BMW shift knob is about 3/4″ shorter than the “standard” shift knobs and is weighted (5.4oz) to give a better, more substantial, shifter feel for the driver. We love the subtle, yet noticeable improvement this makes in the “feel” of gear changes. It’s also identical in size/shape/weight to the shift knob that came on the E46 330 ZHP, and is available in either 5 speed or 6 speed gear shift patterns.
Your choice of shift patterns:
+ 5 Speed ZHP Shift knob: BMW Part # 25117896031
+ 6 Speed ZHP Shift knob: BMW Part # 25117896886
Perhaps best of all, this shift knob fits ALL 1982 and newer manual transmission BMWs. That’s right — this knob can be used on ALL BMWs, 1982 and later. So no matter what model BMW you have — E30, E36, E46, E90 or E92 or anything else — this knob will look, work, and feel GREAT. This knob also looks and works great on all 1 series including 128i and 135i.
