not sure what its called...

the little oval on the top of the shift knob. basically states where to put the shifter when driving. im looking to get a new piece like that because i know they just pop off. but where can i buy one? i don't need a whole new shift knob, just that piece because mine looks like crap

you can find them on lots of online stores, and ebay must have lots of them , they are called shift knob buttons or caps... if you really like your shifter than go for it, but personally i would just upgrade the whole shift knob all together,

ok, so there is a manual, but i'm not sure if it gives you this peice of warning....

watch out for your face when your pull the knob off, lol. i installed a short throw shifter a little while back and the sucker finally popped off after pulling as hard as i could and bopped me in the nose, lol. didn't bleed but it hurt :lol: so fair warning to make sure you don't smack your face. later

yeah i think you might have been in the thread when i was asking about mine a long while back, lol, and later got on the boards to laugh about it :lol:

here is the shift knob i currently have, i got it on ebay, pretty sweet, i love it...


it was called something like... BMW M Short Shift Knob ...snaps right on, its not aftermarket, so you don't have to waste time with those screws that always work their way out and when you use lock tight, never get the knob back off, lol.
