Subject: Illuminated Shift Knob

I have recieved a lot of questions regarding this so I will write what I know.

Here is an item which does not make you car go any faster but BAYBY does it look good in your car! The illuminated leather shift knob comes with the M tri color stripes on the upper left corner of the shift pattern emblem so not only does it look good at night but by day as well. Funny thing when I bought my car(black on black), I kinda felt that the lower console area was dark feeling and thought, "gee the rest of the car is lit like an Xmas tree, an illuminated gear knob would finish it off". A few weeks later I picked up the new Original BMW Accessories Catalog(nice catalog by the way)from my local BMW dealer. I flip thought it droolin and all that and what do I find on page 47!!!!! wishes do come true.
The knob comes with a wire harness that plugs in to the dimmer switch of your car and is controled by it, nice setup. To remove your old shift knob, pull up on it firmly taking care not to hit yourself. I think there is only one screw to remove on the lower dash cover to access the dimmer switch. At any rate the instructions that come with it are good.
