My car, '89 325i 2 door, like many other stick shift cars has an issue of having the shifter knob pop off on hard shifts n Is there an easy cheep fix for this besides buying a new knob. If buying a new knob is my only way to solve this problem are there any aftermarket companys that make a press-on style knob that doesn't pop off on hard shifts like the factory ones do?

docrobot is an unknown quantity at this point


That happened to me just last the weekend in my '92 325i!!!

I noticed I pushed up (for some reason) when I shifted.

I almost ran onto the sidewalk because I was laughing so hard...

I would just say get an aftermarket one. You can probably pick one up pretty cheap off ebay.

I put a Sparco one on mine casuse the factory one was real wobbly
