Anybody know if the automatic shifter knob from a 99 323i will work on my 97 318i?

How about this one... I think it looks pretty slick:

The same seller also has them in other finishes.

I was under the impression that the shifter rods might be different, depending on the style of knob..

most of the shift knobs ive seen are universal, they have an opening, which if too big, they come with inserts to fit ur car

hmm, I have only really seen that for manual shift knobs, not saying you are wrong at all, because I don't know myself. I just figured that OEM shift knobs would not be universal.
