i know when i replaced my shift knob, the owners before me had hot glued it on, so if its an old, broken down one..what i did was took a razor blade and cut it off, but if you plan on keeping it just pull really hard. Some are harder to get off than others.

Another trick is to place your car in 2.nd gear - place your self on the back seat and pull hard.

Then will you land safer once it's off.

ebay often has many oem ones for a decent price but if you want another type you can get one (at a few good price) from bmwfx.com. Go check it out

i know that when i replaced my 335es one you have to peel up the little plasic peice that tells you were the gears are on top of the knob and then there is a screw, unscrew it and it will be easier to pull the knob off. ASIO...good suggestion LOL!.
peace.
