6 speed pattern E39 M5 shift knob in Aluminum

Can anyone help me locate a brushed aluminum shift knob for my M5 with the 6 speed pattern. All I seem to be able to find is the 5 speed.

Im changing my interior from Wood, to Alum, and want a matching knob.

They look great but be VERY CAREFUL shifting in hot weather. The knob can be extremely hot...to the point you can't even touch it. Good Luck!

not aluminum, rather stainless.. but Doug Whalen (Whalen Shift Machine, Whalen Shift Machine - Custom Shifters ) Can engrave his custom shift knobs however you like, in polished or brushed finish. Email him, he is extremely helpful, and very fast.

hey, Search works!

So my wood knob is starting to come apart and I want to replace it with the ZHP knob.

After removing the original it appears that the boot and knob are 1 piece?
Is this the case, and if so, do I need to replace the boot too?

thanks!

Yes they are 1 piece and you will have to do 1 o* 2 things to put a new knob on. Either cut o** your current boot and twist tie it under itsel* and have your new knob lay on top o* that or:

Buy a new boot. I* you buy a new boot, make sure it comes with a *rame or, i* youre not going to try and sell your old one, take the *rame o** o* it to use with your new boot.

Hope this helps.

*or what its worth, Ive got the Bimmian back-lit aluminum knob with an alcantara boot.
